LB is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artist and artwork:
LB is a public school teacher, zine writer and genderqueer artist from Chicago, IL USA. They sing and drum for the feminist queer band The Ovens and write the zine Truckface. They are inspired by queer heroes of the past and their own rage directed at systems of power. LB is self-taught and only gets to paint during breaks from teaching.
The paintings show feminist rage on papers and canvases.
