oil painting with collage/fiber elements

Date

November of 2022

This was for my Exploding paints class, and became part of an installation piece.
This piece explored my feelings on gender, gender dysphoria, and gender expression. It's meant to reflect the sort of feeling when looking in the mirror, and feeling a disconnect with what you see. I feel this as I have been raised a women and have taught myself to be comfortable with my appearance only when I'm "pretty." Which makes it hard to present as anything other than femme, even though I know thats not who I am.
Acrylic, oil, collage, and fibers on unstretched canvas.
5ft x 4ft
