Os Gêmeos


Fleshed Out is an ongoing series of portraits portraying contemporary portrait painters, constructed exclusively of pigments labeled flesh, skin, and portrait tones. Over 15 acrylic paint manufactures produce pigments with these monikers, revealing a commercial and cultural bias within the field of Painting. The “racial” diversity of the subjects succinctly derides the appropriateness and need for such colors to exist under their ascribed designations.
