The images in this body of work convey the wolves occupying a place & time that was before human convention & the struggle of morality. The wolves exist solely as Transfigūra, stemming from the Latin words, trans. – meaning, across, and figūra. – meaning, figures, rather then archetypes in our stories. The term Transfigūra has become centralized within this mythology as a word that describes & gives name to the figures that appear in my work. It denotes the transcendental transformation of the animal/human while at the same time allowing for the use of a singular name. 

This installation was part of my thesis, if you're interested in reading more about it you can find more information here.
