I am a visual narrator, a conquerer of reality and a playmate of perception.

{...} A selection of subjects that seemingly tell a story of the average. {...} IJ's portrait art speaks a visual language that seeks to catch the subtlety of some elusive gestures and singular encounters. In so doing, rather conventional shapings of the gender binary and their gestural manifestations and codifications are addressed alongside the apparent and non-negotiable fact of a person's singularity and the undeniable dignity that lies in the (physical) self-expression of every single hu_man* being.
