Works from my "Balance-beyond androgyny" series.
Cut-out magazines and books pages
Ideas of gender exist in terms of binary and dualistic expression. False ideas of “masculinity” and “femininity” can only be seen as true if they are held in stark contrast to one another.
The gender binary is the assumption that only two genders exist in this world, male and female.
Keeping the masculine and the feminine apart and separate is difficult and unnatural, while keeping them together is simple and natural.
A stronger message must emerge around transgender in order to brake the concept of gender dichotomy and for rights to be achieved and voices to be heard.
It is my hope to put a new perspective on gender through my artistic process. I will manipulate photographic images through cutting, overlapping, drawing, and painting. Through this process, images are transformed into new organic forms that find an existential dimension and a public identity through a powerful osmosis with nature and its elements.
