[Fine Art, Drawing: Reversing Gender] Are You Comfortable With This?, 09/16

To show a more detailed approach to the reversed colour and genital idea, I have produced drawings using pen and coloured pencil. I feel the in depth drawn bodies work extremely well with the reversed genitals as the brain automatically thinks the picture shows the traditional, normal gender but the colour tint and reassigned penis/vagina challenges that normality – the pieces highlight Jones’ statement that “identifying a person’s gender is not black and white (or pink and blue) there are a lot of shades of grey in between”. Jones also commonly removes people’s limbs in his collages which I have developed into these drawings. I feel this draws more focus to the body and meaning in-appose to a pretty picture of a full person.
