This is not who I am.

This is not who I am

La Reve 1932 by Pablo Picasso

I am not dreaming of anyone’s membrum virile.

I am not a man.

I am not a misogynist.

I am not a cubist

I am not dating someone 28 years younger to me by using my fame.

I am not up for the male gaze.

I am not full of myself.

I am not an inventor of art forms.

I am not blonde.

I am not competitive.

I am not Spanish.

I am not one to use abstract simplification of line and form.

I am not lounging on a red armchair.

I am not a believer of separating the art from the artist.

I am not excused from being held responsible for my work.

I am not someone who can paint human figures.

I am not one who looks at women as muses to further my career.

I am not hurting people around me during my process.

I am not problematic.

I am not from the Fauvist era.

I am not asleep so that someone can paint me without my consent.

I am not living a glorious life.

I am not a genius.

I am not dead.
