embrace.gif is an animation made from two separate linocut prints. The removal of details removes context, while echoing the subtractive nature of relief printmaking. Rapidly switching between the two prints, I contrast the same gesture in different states. Each state reveals a different interpretation of the exact same pose. The animation explores the permissive nature of sports as it pertains to male displays of affection, and how context can influence our perception.
