Among the paintings on show is Shepherd (2015), a small-scale composition packed with imagery and detail. At its center is a nude woman, overburdened by her flock. A menagerie of birds rings her head and torso, practically engulfing her entire upper half in a fury of fluttering wings. She is uncovered from the waist down, save for the two garters that tightly encircle her thighs, each one outfitted with hooks holding children’s objects, including a pacifier, a toy block, a tiny stuffed pink bunny, and a spoon. She is flanked by the children for whom these objects are intended, each remarkably unchildlike. One holds a martini, the other a human skull. As if to complicate her burden yet further, a black cat lies in wait in the background, menacingly eyeing her avian swarm.
