Flower Bed

Serigraph print on paper from Macho Sissy Series by Jeff Ball

Copyright Jeff Ball 2007

As I continue this year, committed to posting one new image each day for 365 days, I would like to begin introducing other aspects of my work.

I often use my photography as a starting place rather than an end. I merge the images into drawings, paintings and serigraph prints through a variety of techniques.

This serigraph print on paper measures approximately 16″x24″ and is part of my ongoing, Macho Sissy series.

The work  juxtaposes masculine and feminine imagery together representing the blurring of gender lines. The image of the muscular male form printed in deep brown is balanced by the bright blue flowers beneath him, creating a soft bed of petals.

I believe that we all have both masculine and feminine traits that should be celebrated, not suppressed by socially constructed gender roles.
