This work plays with the contrast between naked and clothed, which is also the line between human and animal.

In some ways it is the same distinction that gets made between an artistic nude and a pornographic image, to separate the human and the sexual object.

The cat mask is subtle reference to Japanese slang, with “neko” being the term for the femme in a lesbian relationship.
