Open Art Calls Accepted Artists
Artist Taylor Whiting
Long Beach, California USA
Too often traditional societal expectations of gender, construct our understanding of what it means to be a male or female. We are regularly asked to identify our sex, through our clothes, behavior and boxes we check on questioners. However to what purpose does it serve to identify as either male or female? I believe too often our sex is defined through societal ideologies of gender roles
I believe it is misguided to make assumptions based on sex and inhibits our understanding of humans as individuals. As a child I was considered a tomboy because of my interests. Sometimes I even felt that I had to pretend to like Barbie to fit in.
I am not alone in this experience as the pressures of gender connotations are a universal reality. I hope that this piece facilitates that conversation.
The views expressed by our artists in their artist statements do not necessarily represent the views of our art galleries. Artists can be visually expressive but may verbally misrepresent their true intentions or ideas. Please note that we support expression, whether it is controversial or not, but our intention is never to offend.
