ARTFUCKER, Artfucker is visual identity that emerged in early 2017. Never one to be constrained to a medium, the New-York based artist, started as sculptor, turned graphic artist, and most recently cultivated a new brand of stylized video manipulations.
Artfucker sets out to capture the raw emotion of queer love, in their first attempt at short film
Gg USA 1963
“My earliest memories are actually not mine. They are photographs. I swiped my Father’s camera at age 13, and surely would have a different view of my life if it weren’t for that. Photography to me is a form of alchemy of the soul; the giving and receiving of beauty, a visual poetry. I look to the World and our place in it from the point of view of our sameness, not our differences, from it's beauty, not it's pain. I look for what inspires me; the mysterious and magical, the things that fortify hope. It is about connecting the entirety of life into one moment.”
Gg’s appetite to understand the world from different points of view led her to travel as a professional photographer until arriving in Guatemala, where she currently resides. Her earliest influences were Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol; geniuses of the real and the surreal. She is the first foreigner to be awarded anexhibit at the National Palace in Guatemala with her show: “El Tiempo de no Tiempo” (The Time of no Time). Gg has worked as a staff photographer for Fashion Wire Daily and Polaris images as well as being a contributing photographer for Inked magazine. Her work has been published in numerous international and national publications, and awarded Jurors prize in the Fifth Wednesday Journal.
