Intimately

Intimately is a charcoal drawing series of intimate views of the body and accompanying text that explores the ideas and concepts we may hold about intimacy in the U.S. The accompanying booklet grew out of the thoughts about intimacy that occurred to me while I produced the drawings.

Candid Signature

Prints of Candid may be purchased by clicking on the photo

Intimacy requires us to be candid. We show ourselves to another with all our bumps, bulges, and scares – physical, mental, or emotional – bared. We show our imperfection. We unveil how far we stray from the unreachable perfection that society sells us that we should. Intimacy can not be reached when we are not candid.
The soft roundness of a relaxed belly letting us know nothing is held back. Everyone has a belly when they are soft and intimate. What are you afraid of others seeing?

 

Intimately is also available for purchase as a booklet.
