Guided by my explorations and contemplations of being a queer artist, I am curious and skeptical if portraiture is still a viable way to explore identity. In this presentation I will share the body of work that I am exploring in regards to my questions and frustrations on the limitations of portraiture. How does one make portraits that do not objectify the subjects? How does one make a set of portraiture that does not marginalize its subjects? How should one navigate around theories on objectification and otherness in creating portraitures about identity, especially in a queer context?
