Dylan Hurwitz

In my work, genderless hands reach, hold, contain, rub, stroke, massage, chop, disrobe, wash, type, calculate, and more in attempted fulfillment of various bodily desires. The subjects in these paintings seek pleasure and prioritize self care over productivity. Disembodied hands and their contact with various structures and surfaces are the subject- be it with other bodies, consumer products, food, and more. Seeing the world through these hands implies a bodily disassociation while creating a point-of-view perspective that invites the viewer’s projections of their selves into the work. The radicality of queer desire and sexuality underlines my work.
