by Mar Pascual
tenderqueerthings is an on-going project which began in 2014. combining delicate poems and hand-cut paper craft, the confessional nature of the work intimately recounts past experiences and offers space to honor and preserve those moments. the process mimics the intent of scrapbooking, yet, it relies solely on text as opposed to imagery. this growing series of work is a representation of what it means to become.
