J. Carino is a New York-based artist, working in a variety of media, exploring the male nude. This is a series of self portraits, done from life, playing with the ideas of sexuality and anonymity. "Although the drawings can make me feel very exposed, there is always the freedom in that it remains anonymous because it’s a drawing and not a photograph. I’m sharing, but I’m still hiding behind lines, color, abstraction, exaggeration, and a pseudonym. It’s a way for me to explore artistically, without having the pressure of having it attached to who I am in my day-to-day life. There is a dichotomy of wanting to be seen, and a fear of people seeing too much.”
