Adapt or Die

'Adapt or Die' Oil on canvas, 30" x 30" x 1.75"

Socialization is a complex, lifelong process by which an individual acquires the attitudes, beliefs, customs, values, roles and expectations and appropriate patterns of behaviors of a culture or group (family, tribe, social class, a racial or ethnic unit, a religious group and a community) These shared expectations form the culture of a group.

Each new role brings with it new socialization, and the socialization is always based on the attitudes, expectations and the values of the surrounding social group.

With Adapt or Die I try to explore how we as individuals conform to a multitude of behaviour patterns, all of which are partially prescribed by our surrounding culture.
