Artist Statement Platform Events
Moist is a series of art works exploring the ever changing and challenged relationship with the artists ageing body. Raised in a world that both shamed and silenced the innate sexuality of their being whilst scrutinising every curve, lump, and hair they grew; Fleassy is exploring the nuanced and complex relationship they now find themselves in with themself.
As a multidisciplinary artists, gender fluid woman, and bi/pansexual being, Fleassy Malay approaches all creative expression with a sense of fluidity and a need to share a balanced perspective. This series is designed to both celebrate their relationship to their body and sexuality whilst owning the tender and shame-ridden place it can be at times.
The artist aim is, as always, to leave their audience wet at both ends.
