Support Janet Bruesselbach painting humans and other segmented tubes at patreon.com/limnrix. Get a bit of each thing I make. The size of the thing depends on total pledges per, and the first goal is $100 – I won’t make anything until I get at least that much support.

The exhibition is a selection from Daughters of Mercury, a series of full-length, large-scale oil portraits by Bruesselbach celebrating the diverse beauty of trans women. The series plays with the tropes of the female body in representational painting. The subjects collaborated with the artist and chose how to be seen, through the artist’s inventive cyborg figuration.
Please support my Indiegogo campaign to extend Daughters of Mercury, before September 29. I’ve completed 18 giant paintings and want to make a second calendar and paint these 6 more diverse trans woman models I have planned. I’m continuing to offer pre-purchase of the 2017 calendar, along with 2016 calendar, as well as high-quality prints and the original paintings themselves. I’ve spent as much as the goal on the project since April and anything you can contribute toward this ambitious project and awesome subjects helps a lot. Thank you!
I painted more than 15 paintings for Daughters of Mercury, so I’m running another Kickstarter to finish with 25 portraits, make a second calendar for 2017, and make sure I can have a big, long show in NYC. Funding runs from June 23 – July 26 and I’m asking for $10k, all or nothing. Please back as much as you can. Thank you!
I’m running a Kickstarter until October 26 asking for your support painting a series of full-length oil portraits of trans women, that transcend their conventional depictions in art and media. Rewards include wall calendars, prints, and original paintings. Click above to view a preview or support after Sunday, September 21. If we don’t reach the goal, I can’t pay the models, cover travel costs, or pay for my time and materials, so I won’t make art. If you can’t spare, share. Thank you!
