Cat Gunn: Pretty Boy
In a recent series of abstract paintings, artist Cat Gunn creates work which addresses notions of identity within the LGBTQ community that are androgynous, queer, non-binary, transgender, or gender-fluid. The aim of their exhibition “Pretty Boy” is to offer a deeply personal and poetic narrative of growing up, engaging in relationships, navigating the world, and coming into one’s own from a queer, non-binary perspective.
Cat Gunn is an artist living and working in Baltimore who identifies as non-binary transgender and queer. They create abstract paintings with layers of oil paints and mediums built up over time, using a variety of techniques to manipulate the alchemy of the paint.
Cat’s exhibition, “Pretty Boy,” will be on display in the Terrace Gallery at BlackRock Center for the Arts through February 22, 2020. The gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday-Saturday and is free and open to the public.
