Asexuality is defined by the absence of something. Therefore, visualizing it feels like an exercise in depicting invisibility. This does frustrate me, as symbolism is something I tend to avoid in my personal work. Yet, I'm struggling to develop a visual language that attempts to portray absence when addressing ace subjects. This drawing sees asexuality as one of the cards we can be been dealt in life. It can help us succeed, if we play it right. It also deals with the ambivalence of belonging to the LGBTQ+ tapestry, but not quite fitting in.
