Portrait of comedian, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, actor, drag queen and life-size woman, Trixie Mattel.
I became enamored of Trixie, drawn to her unique brand and musical talent. Standing nearly 7ft tall in her heels and wig, she has a quick wit, a gorgeous Native American jawline and hair for days. Our initial sitting took place backstage at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, just before Trixie’s performance of her one-woman music and comedy show.
Throughout the work I push and pull the boundary between realism and abstraction, highlighting the layers and complexity of identity, gender and beauty. Trixie and I collaborated as the portrait approached completion, deciding on a pink floral pattern inspired by an outfit from Trixie’s extensive Barbie collection.
