The COVID-19 outbreak transformed behemoth aspirations into fun-sized monstrosities. Combining the ‘feminine’ art of embroidery with a bubbling mass of plush and illustration, lines between ‘natural’ and ‘person-made’ become entangled. My beasts are born as tethered smatterings of gendered language, material, and imagery. Consider: Should we become the monster they claim us to be?

  This work asks, why not?
