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.)"
