MrMrs Artist Statement
MrMrs is a series of photographs, created through collaboration with transvestite and transgender models, that provoke viewers to question the notion of gender, and to think about the symbols and conventions of how we dress. The goal with these images is to catch the viewer by surprise, presenting what first appears to be feminine, but upon further inspection is revealed to be masculine. I want people to confront their own biases, and to think about where their beliefs originate.
The completed project will be presented in a solo show October 2019 at the University of New England, and will collaborate with Biddeford’s Engine arts center. Visit A Work in Progress.
