Huanca has produced a limited edition vacuum packed versatile unisex garment based on her paintings.

Donna Huanca’s OBSIDIAN LADDER triggers the senses through painting, sculpture, sound, scent, and performance. The artist’s process of femme mark-making is rooted in scientific and natural phenomena, as well as meditative practices. Using skin as both canvas and performative tool, Huanca deconstructs dominant gender and body politics, introducing a non-objectifying gaze focused on memory, biology, and time.

Huanca’s use of natural materials, such as raw pigments, oils, turmeric, sand, and clay, is essential to her developing an other-worldly environment. In her skin paintings—a term that refers to both the painted live models and the hanging canvases—she layers these materials with fragments of paint, latex, and other skin-like substances. This material link between the works, including the painted humans that navigate her sculptural landscapes, creates a tactile ecosystem.

100% percent of the proceeds from the sale of these items will be donated to three Los Angeles-based nonprofits: the Trans Wellness Center, REACH LA, and the East Los Angeles Women’s Center.

SKIN PAINTING printed on 4-way power mesh
