  • TRNK Editions presents MIEN - a cross-section of queer artists of color who leverage portraiture photography to explore identity beyond visibility. 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Ali Forney Center.

    Rather than presenting queerness as a cultural homology, these images take authorship over individual lived experience while acknowledging contributions to a representative body politic. Expressly, by bringing these diverse works in conversation with one another, this show makes legible the inherent tension between community and self.

    Each work is presented as a limited-edition, 20"x30" poster ($75 Unframed, $250 Framed). 100% of proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Ali Forney Center to combat LGBTQ youth homelessness in NYC.

    The full title of this work by NYC-based artist Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. is the following:

    'Breath tucks in and weighs the eyes closed. Beyond that callused layer lie a circular gradient of white, into yellow, into burnt orange and red. A euphoric entrance into day, and yet space becomes obscure and distant in the dark. Suddenly,
    n the aftermath of that quiet to-do of colors, my body is the only thing I know to be here. “Take your time,” you whisper.'

    Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. (b. 1993, Long Island, NY) utilizes photography and sculpture to visualize intimacy, communion, and self-possession. He is a recipient of the 2019 Rema Hort Mann Emerging Artist Grant and has participated in the New York Times Portfolio Review (2016), Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2017), and the St. Roch Community Church Artist Residency (2018-2019). In addition to his artistic practice, Brown Jr.’s work has been commissioned by The New Yorker, Out, W, Cultured, Luncheon, and King Kong. He received his BFA in Photography from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University and is currently represented by Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in New York.
