'Relinquishing Perfection' deals with the concept of humanity's need to exercise control and try to perfect natural things even when it becomes damaging. It looks at sociably acceptable forms of this phenomenon, such as the breeding of certain dogs despite major health problems. This is juxtaposed by the use of finger painting, something that is by nature hard to control. The painted elements remain blurred while the areas of the subject that are most affected are made clearer using procreate. The various conditions of the subjects are listed below the portraits.
