Just Lost My Peace of Mind
Photograph and Digital
15″ x 10″

My self-portraits present a play between femininity and masculinity by including traditionally feminine clothing, along with textures and clothing associated with both men and women. I want to close the gap between the two and help change the narrative of trans masculine people. I incorporate shapes hidden behind the figure as well as invading the space of the in order to parallel the feelings of discomfort that I feel. I use circles behind each of the figure’s heads to give a sense of divinity and otherworldliness.
