Fuck, I'm Stuck!
J Hammond Projects, 2021
London, UK
'Fuck, I'm stuck!' pieces together memories and personal writings through a series of dramatic, subtly sexualised paintings that gnaw away at the human desire to seek, yet reject, restraint and restriction. These imagined self portraits bear a heavily conflicted psychological nature, constantly probing the complexities of gender identity and its intersections.
