PAINTED LOVE: Requiems for Salacious Sex Queens

 

A series of 18 intimate portraits of deceased, sex industry-involved women, this series celebrates their beauty, character and humanity to defy simplistic, polarizing understandings of the ways in which some women participate in the industry and the broad trajectory their lives had reached. Some of these works previewed at the 2015 Feminist Art Conference at OCAD University and at my June 2014 solo exhibition at A Space Gallery in Toronto.
