Dimension

72" x 48"

Médium

Oil on Canvas

Focusing on investigations of queer identity, notions of masculinity and body dysmorphia through material explorations of surface vis-a-vis paint. The surface “skin” of the painting in this case acts as a metaphor for the extreme measures that we take to alter our bodies in the name of beauty.
