ARTIST STATEMENT

TRANSGENDER NUDES
In the West we think mostly binary: Life feels less frightening if we can separate good and bad into two neat compartments, or if we can see the spirit apart from the body. If the sex distinction is not obvious and clear, this threatens the social order.

The realistic and detailed pencil drawings of Arte Colder are inconclusive. On the contrary, the question arises if there is an absolute definition of gender, and why this finding is considered so important. How are we dealing with gender and identity, and what role does this plays in our society?
In ancient India it was the deity Shiva, god of destruction as well as creation, which had a strong androgynous character.
His body exhibits female characteristics, such as soft rounded contours and no beard, and sometimes he is also depicted as half man, half woman, which are symbols of transcending the opposites, for the original unity of polarities.

The many gradations and layers grey in the drawings symbolize the degree of masculinity and femininity that greatly differ per individual. It is as if vivisection is executed on the double role of the sexes.
Unique persons in all their obscene intimacy, innocent and fragile.
