2012 Installation at the Laverne Krause Gallery in Eugene, Oregon.

Y is a series of eleven graphite drawings that examines and interrogates gender categorization, and plays with the leeway between biological sex and gender as performance. Originally conceived for an all-male invitational group exhibition these drawings act as a response to gender as a mode of person perception. Ambiguity is a tool that I employ in this series to blur the line of social constructs of gender. Each drawing is a collaborative portrait of each of the eleven males in my graduate program during the 2011-2012 academic year.
