Time Out says

If the paintings of pointy objects piercing circular elements in Furr’s solo debut seem a bit loaded to you, well, that’s entirely intentional. Furr’s images play with male and female archetypes as a way of redressing the imbalance, in her words, between the phallic and the yonic—the inference of her canvases being that the former isn’t penetrating the latter so much as it is being immobilized by it.
