MAR PASCUAL is a Filipinx, nonbinary, queer, femme interdisciplinary artist.
Their work commonly explores themes that center decolonization, gender non-conformity and fluidity, intimacy after trauma, and living with mental illness.
They work in several mediums producing zines, cut-paper collages, oil paintings, pen and ink drawings, ballpoint pen sketches, and more.
When asked about what their work means to them, Mar shares the following:
"tenderqueerthings is an on-going project which began six years ago. Combining delicate poems and hand-cut paper craft, the confessional nature of this series intimately recounts past experiences and offers space to honor and preserve those moments. This growing series of work is a representation of what it means to become and is a means for me to name my truths."
"The attached piece is the latest in my tenderqueerthings series ("#58", 2020. Cut paper.)"
