A playful series of transhuman portraits with dinosaur heads. I create paintings of LGBTQ-identified and allied people, most recently focusing on my partner, dearest friends and those who have impacted my life in some way. My work explores the line between glorification, objectification and modification. I use patterns from each subject’s local and social environment as a subtle vernacular to portray the layers and complexities of identity.
