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.
