Kyle has explored the Queer identity through his own personal development and through the subjects that he has painted for over six years. By having creatives, musicians, artists, and expressive individuals all sit for a portrait from life (or for reference imagery) Kyle cements their history in an oil painting format. These individuals that all exist within the LGBTQIA+ community have been largely viewed as lessor, as the lower rungs of society, yet they hold such strong power and visual presence. Kyle has, and will forever continue to, explore his techniques and laboriously practiced craft on the Queer peers he places into oil.
Below is a selection of commissions, full concept artworks and alla prima portraiture studies.
