I wanted to try mimicking my own art style in real life. I create drawings of angry and brutal looking woman. These women, these girls are to to make men, to make you, uncomfortable, to destroy and replace the images of women looking away from the viewer to fall subject to “The Gaze”. I will draw women Gazing at you, we are the Gaze now.
Do NOT remove my comments, and DO NOT reblog onto porn blogs. This is my art, treat it with respect.
Spectrum was a 2 year project that was show in Zone a BFA Show, Avenue of the Arts 2014 and Artprize 2014. It was about visualizing the gender spectrum, and celebrating the beauty and diversity of the Queer Community. Each of these portraits was printed 30″ tall, hand cut, and accompanied by a hand cut and lettered speech bubble, containing a sentence told to the person in response to their gender identity. This project could not have been possible without everyone who volunteered, and I am eternally grateful to each and every one of you. I’m sorry to those I did not get time to draw, it was a long and stressfull project that I took on before I really knew how to manage myself as an artist. Again, thank you to each and every one of you. Your stories, your photos, they meant the world to me, and you are all so special. Please do not remove this caption, or any of these pictures, thank you. - Rayne Klar
Thanks to the contribution of over 70 beautiful amazing queer and trans individuals, I was able to complete my BFA senior show! Due to time restraints I was only able to complete 25 portraits, however it is my goal to draw everyone who emailed me for Art Prize 2014! If you see your face on the wall, I will be emailing you a version of your portrait in the coming month or so. I have to get a new job, graduate, and move into a new house by the 26th, so I’m sort of busy lately!
The show was beautiful, and I had a lot of people who were very interested and excited about the project, and I hope to continue expanding it. I know I made a bunch of people uncomfortable with it, which is always fun.
Again, I can’t thank you enough for taking the time and courage to email me and help me with the project, it was a huge success thanks to all of you!
(p.s if you are not part of the project you can commission me for a portrait in this style!)
