We have a new artist on XConfessions!
Why collaborate with XConfessions?
I have always been a fan of Erika Lust, her films and the way she approaches sex and sexuality. I came across her cite while taking my “sexual Representation in Cinema” course at Concordia University. Since then, I have explored her work and found Xconfessions which I was obsessed with. This was everything I wanted to explore in art. These true stories of emotions, fantasies, confessions were coming from human beings that I could relate too. I thought her films were so beautiful.
It is said that your work is “playful and malicious”. Would you agree that it’s an angry response to modern society?
I’d like to say my work is more playful and meticulous rather than malicious. I am not trying to say anything with anger. I am just trying to express my own experiences with sexuality by illustrating sincere, honest, vulnerable and powerful portrayals of women. I also want to encourage more sex positive art through a series of graphic and sexually-liberating illustrations.
How did you get involved with the “Hotter than July, Hands off my Cuntry” exhibition?
How do you think your illustrations depict the way women feel towards Trump right now?
This is definitely a hard one….Maybe “I just want to fit in”. It focuses on my own vulnerable attitude towards “fitting in”. Not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. I have been in those moments where I was considered “most desirable” or “considered intimate” by forcing myself to agree on some term of non consensual sex. Not fitting in to a category I believe I belong in, even though I want to be free and sexually liberated.
