Not What You Think

I love when people blur gender lines in new and beautiful ways. In a world that says boys are blue and girls are pink, pile as many f*cking crowns on your head as possible and shatter those rules. This oil painting timelapse video shows the creation of my painting Not What You Think featuring drag performer and DJ Prince JayJay. This painting will be included in my upcoming exhibit The Masks We Wear, opening in October 2019 at the (Not) Sheep Gallery in Columbus, Ohio. It's hard to resist jumping right to the details - especially when there are so many fun ones - but my art teacher always said "You can't hang the drapes until you build the walls." This video shows the foundational part of the process and some refining of the facial features.
