CJ is a queer trans non-binary artist whose artworks focus on organic shapes and textures. They seek to de-gender embroidery, whilst honouring its perception as feminine work. He uses mostly second-hand materials to depict nature and abstracted depictions of the body. Their work has been exhibited at Brunswick Street Gallery, the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, forty-five downstairs gallery, as well as published in journals such as Baby Teeth and Antithesis. They aim to challenge our perceptions of bodies, in a cis-heteronormative patriarchal world.
CJ graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Gender Studies and French at the University of Melbourne.
He lives and creates on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country.
