Jasper Drilling is an oil painter who explores the relationship between gender and the body. He uses self-portraits to reflect and react to his experiences growing up queer and trans and coming to terms with his identity. He recently graduated with a BA in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington, where he was awarded the Emil R. Schnellock Award in painting. He is based in Richmond, Virginia, and has shown work throughout the state, including the “Made in VA” exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art.
