Artwork Description
Description
Close-in portraits of two women dressed up for a rave, wearing armloads of plastic bead bracelets and making heart symbols with their hands. 
Collection Statement
Kandi Kids is part of  a series of drawings about affirmative image and identity. 

We are so confronted with images and actions of despicable, appalling groups that it’s easy to overlook the many positive associations formed voluntarily around a diversity of interests by people who share them. From steampunks to sports fans to servers at mass, we set ourselves apart from the multitude while declaring our special group allegiance through clothing, symbol and ritual, much as humans have done from time immemorial.

The women in this particular drawing are Kandi Kids, members of one of the many groups in the rave scene who come together to dance and party. They wear elaborate plastic pony bread jewelry, called kandi, made specifically for gatherings where it’s traded with a ritual exchange based on their motto of Peace, Love, Unity & Respect or PLUR. 

There is much to admire about Kandi Kid culture as a body positive, fully inclusive group whose only requirement for membership is a willingness to practice PLUR.
