This event has ended.

Erik Patton is interested in the performance and construction of sexuality and gender. His process is multi-layered: he constructs 3D collages, which consists of projecting images (from his metasexual image database) onto friends, photographs the 3D collage, and then paints and collages on top of the photograph. His aim is to create metasexuals whose identities are not constrained by contemporary gender or sexual identity preconceptions.

The metasexual image database is an amalgamation of Patton’s metasexual superstars, and include: Linder Sterling, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Jack Wrangler, images by A.L. Steiner, Alyssa Milano, film stills from Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976), drawings of his Kinsey scale, and James Franco, among other metasexuals. Many of these superstars emerged from his Gay Is The New Black series.
