This work explores the nature of masculinity. Our societal education is filled with images and stories of masculine heroes displaying their power and success. The pose was chosen as a referral to the carved marble busts of the white, wealthy, middle class, men we call ‘heroes’ – heroes in war or politics, men of great learning. The portrait sits on a classically dark background, but the image refers to a much more feminine side of a man with the use of lipstick and bare shoulders, a side of masculinity we neglect to acknowledge.
