Abstract
My portfolio is centered around my lived experiences as a queer person of color in America and American-occupied lands in conversation with queer theorists and punk-based music. I use abstract painting to reposition my power within the structure of the heteropatriarchal society dominated by Christian ideologies, by creating psycho-analytical landscapes that retell the histories of my body. Through this portfolio, I translate audio into visual marks by allowing the music to produce distinct marks that feel like moments of the song and have colors match the beats per minute by managing the balance between neutrals and bright, rich colors. Connecting theory, music, and painting, “Fleshy Familiarity” becomes an extension of myself; a mixture that contributes to the diversification of the art community and a little revolutionary in its existence. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/12XmTTliXrjzyH3eE1sbxC?si=d97d1a060c374112
