States of Being is a portrait project. The works are life-size paintings and drawings. This work is about painting living beings inhabiting their bodies—to show that all are the same in the fact of embodiment. View the call for models.

“States of Being” is a direct evolution from my ongoing Self-PortraitBra-Portrait projects. Both center on the conflict between personal, embodied experience and external cultural perceptions.

States of Being Live and States of Being Traced are community works made with volunteer models. Visit the project pages by clicking the links below.
