Flowing Between explores the combination of masculine and feminine sex characteristics known as androgyny. Sexual ambiguity may be found in fashion, gender identity, sexual identity or sexual lifestyle. However, my work investigates the biological intersex physicality of gender. The use of spray and oil paint mixed media is supported with the use of text to feature primal characteristics such as ribs and hairlines. The works of Anthony Lister, Brett Whiteley and Adam Cullen have extensively influenced my work, as experimentation with form and use of colour have allowed the gender ambiguity to be distinct.
