The birdwatching series plays with metaphors. These paintings are about boys watching girls and about girls feeling watched. But that is just one more level of metaphor. They are about surveillance: about watching and about feeling watched.
The paintings are about how surveillance disrupts and modifies behavior – about how we learn how to hide and about how we learn how to get attention … adapting and adjusting … as we decide when we want to be seen and when we do not.
