4Sale subverts the dichotomy of masculinity and femininity as proliferated by in representational art, as curated by male artists, and art institutions. For the series, I paint myself in poses which were traditionally given to female models, parodying works by white male artists, which are considered masterpieces within the dominating Western art canon.
