Artist Statement for Flowers at Your Feet

Texas Isaiah’s (b. Brooklyn, NY) new body of work, Flowers At Your Feet, offers a space for mourning, celebration, prayer, and remembrance. In this series of photographs, transmasculine, nonbinary, and gender-expansive sitters Dash (he/him), Bearboi (Bear) (they/them), and Lex (he/him) act as spirits who move across a lush landscape while suspended in a dream state, removed from the confines of binary systems and categorizations in a rare moment of rest. Here, Texas Isaiah asserts the significance of imagination in gender abolition, expands on the capacity of transmasculinity to support Black feminist practices, and explores rest as a place of connection to oneself and one’s ancestors.
