Astrotwitch “Getting By” exhibition at off the kerb Friday the 16th of June 2017..

Early this year I started painting queer and transgender women accompanied by researched statistics on the violence and trauma that we experience. I think this was an unconscious response, or coping mechanism, to the politics we are currently living through. These paintings are building on that idea. They are my attempt to acknowledge the facts of survival, and sometimes not surviving, of women, queers and transgender people in our culture.
