Circé was inspired to create this piece by her friend who performs as a Drag King in Montreal, Canada. In this painting, she looks at the iconic persona of the Drag King, and seeks to give context with the energy and humor, the strength and humanity she finds inherent in this performance art. Circé delves into the construction of identity, of gender and the often seen taboo of crossing that construct.
