Oil on canvas, 2019. 48″ x 48″
Jasen wanted to explore his masculine and feminine selves in our collaborative painting. Originally he wanted to make a costume that was literally half male and half female, but that never materialized. So we decided to use a mirror image and we literally started with a mirror. However, the mirror was too small and had to be moved around; we ended up creating two separate poses and merging them into one image, a technique I had used in a couple of earlier works.
