Pursuing an education in Fine Art has been an interesting journey so far. Being able to advance to higher courses, and influenced by my peers intense drive for higher academic achievement, I decided to take some initiative this term.
I am taking a 300 level course designed to stimulate individual drive and focus required for living as a working artist, so I came up with an area of focus for myself. My work is going to reflect Queer representation in fine art, focusing on gender presentation and sexuality. This is going to be the most difficult project I have undertaken due to the social and cultural complexities associated with the Queer Identity.
Wish me luck, I only want to do my best and succeed as an artist, tackling and including diverse and challenging topics. And being Queer is a personal topic to me since, I am in fact Queer.
