23.5 x 17.5 acrylic on paper Exhibited in the 2017 Irwin Scholarship Show at UCSC. This portrait based on a photograph the subject took of themselves shows their tattoos as symbols of the person’s identity and experiences. Although this piece relates the struggle of being trans, it also is about the subject’s own recent reflections in the death of his mother. The term “yea yea yea” seen in the background was a saying the subject’s mother often exclaimed.
