Parte della serie di dipinti "naked me", quest'opera d'arte raffigura uno dei vari soggetti da me ritratti. Sono figure senza tempo, senza alcuna collocazione e definita identità. Quello che voglio trasmettere con il concetto di nudità, è la volontà del soggetto di rendersi Individuo, nonostante le norme sociali vigenti nella nostra società. Perlopiù raffiguro personaggi che giocano con il mondo del gender.
In questo caso, il soggetto ritratto, è una drag queen, che esprimono sè stessi tramite un make up piuttosto esagerato, messo in evidenza dall'applicazione di due paia di ciglia finte sulla carta, in modo da creare una sorta i tridimensionalità al ritratto. Gli occhi, bianchi, sono dovuti al fatto che stanno indossando delle lenti a contatto di tale colore, che però non distraggono dal resto. Solitamente, dipingo i vestiti con delle pennellate veloci, non ben definite, in modo da conferire al soggetto un'idea di leggerezza o di mistero.
Part of the series of paintings "naked me", this work of art depicts one of the various subjects I portrayed. They are timeless figures, without any location or identity. What I want to convey with the concept of nudity, is the will of the subject to become an individual, despite the social norms in our society. Mostly depict characters who play with gender.In this case, the portrayed subject is a drag queen, who express themselves through a rather exaggerated make-up, highlighted by the application of two pairs of fake eyelashes on the paper, in order to create a sort of three-dimensionality to the portrait. The eyes, white, are due to the fact that they are wearing contact lenses of this color, which however do not distract from the rest of the painting. I usually paint clothes with energetic and non defined strokes to give the sense of softness or mistery to the subjects.
