Coming out as gay opened my perception of masculinity, sexuality and gender. Using experiences with male behaviour in straight and gay men, I critique the expressions of masculinity. I use imagery of paradise and pastoral settings to represent my own psyche. Fisherian Runaway is a sexual selection mechanism found in birds and is explored through visuals to express the performative habits of men.
