Hello!! I’m starting to work on my senior thesis and I need some help!!
In short, I am planning to do a series of portraits focusing on gender combined with a sort of object/artifact study. The series is tentatively titled ‘Hello! My Pronouns Are…’ Though I’m still working on the specifics of it, I want to explore the way the things we collect, own, and treasure tie in to various aspects of who we are, while simultaneously talking about gender in society. Genders outside the binary are highly underrepresented in media and this is my way of starting a conversation about it in a way that is easy for everyone to participate! I have this amazing opportunity to share stories and information with an audience, but desperately need the help of around six or seven people for it to work out.
So what this means is that if you identify as agender, bigender, genderqueer, genderfluid, transgender, or anything outside of the binary and would be interested/willing to be interviewed and then painted on a five by five foot canvas, shoot me a message and I would more than thrilled to explain to you my concept more in depth/we can work something out! If you don’t want to be a part of this but know someone who might, please, please pass this on!
I’m located in the Cincinnati/Northern KY area and am willing to travel up to five or so hours away! Anyone located in Indiana, Kentucky, or Ohio (I guess Tennessee) who are willing to get involved would be ideal!
