The Opposite Sex
Art Contests Accepted Artists
Artist Amy O’Hanlon
Kingston Upon Thames, United Kingdom
When you look into the mirror and can only see the mask you wear. You look and you look, but always, you think, “This isn’t me. This isn’t me.”
I use opposing media to convey the dichotomy a person with gender dysphoria might feel. Watercolour can be such a soft medium, and the texture of charcoal is rough, is ragged. They don’t match, they don’t mix, but they’re just marks on paper. How might it feel to be so mismatched within one’s self?
