Nadine Faraj Presents Get Used To Us @ Anna Zorina Gallery In New York

“Get Used To Us” echoes a historic LGBTQ rights slogan "We're here! We're queer! Get used to us!” Nadine Faraj’s fluid wet-on-wet technique abstracts erotic scenes to reflect an essence of sexual freedom that celebrates the mutability of gender and identity. The artist’s expressive application of pigment creates a blurring of boundaries between her subjects in a way that mirrors the suspension of self when provoked by passion. Get Used To Us will be on view through April 6 at Anna Zorina Gallery 532 West 24 Street, New York. photographs courtesy of Anna Zorina Gallery, New York City.
