Artist's Description

Gender X is a third sex option in the gender choice box that allows for the individual to adopt or act without the predetermined gender norms that society so strongly adheres to. This option is unbelievably freeing as is gives the individual permission to make decisions with clarity. The limiting affect that the male and female boxes have are just that, boxes that limit the individuals potential to be true to themselves from clothing choices, mannerisms, career choice, sport options, tone of voice, emotional conditioning, parenting roles etc. “The depth of pastel emotions” although using a male form, is an exploration into an acceptance of myself as apposed the constant tension I held as a child where I constantly felt frustrated and hurt while being forced to behave how girls should. The painting is the state I now inhabit, it is one of strength while also a very gentle way of being where I just am and that is enough. - Grace Kotze
