'Relinquishing Perfection' is a series of images created primarily through finger painting with digital elements added later. It deals with the idea of humans needing to exercise control and try to perfect natural things even when it becomes damaging. It looks at sociably acceptable forms of this phenomena such as the breeding of dogs despite major health problems. This is juxtaposed with less accepted mental health issues linked with obsessive behaviours that I myself have experienced. 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.
