Rawley Chaves (They/Them)

Rawley Chaves graduated from Rhode Island College with a B.A. in film studies. Through their artwork, they strive to convey the idea that there is nothing inherently offensive about nudity. They aim to deconstruct social norms, especially those that pertain to ideologies about sex, gender, beauty, and mental illness. Their artistic influences include Marina Abramovic, Frida Kahlo, Francesca Woodman, and Alok Vaid-Menon.  When they are not creating boundary-pushing art, Rawley enjoys hiking, gardening, cooking, laughing, crying, and overthinking everything. They currently live in Seekonk, MA with their partner, three cats, and three chickens.
