My name is Aidan Fraser and I was born and raised in Midcoast Maine. I am currently making work out of Portland, ME in community based studio Running with Scissors Artist Studios. A frustration with low self esteem born of restrictions and regulations put upon women and our bodies led me to my work. My pieces commemorate and appreciate bodies as they are - soft, asymmetrical and imperfect. I hope for my wares to be a visual reminder that we can observe, experience and ponder unashamedly the relaxed human form. I want my work to remind us that It is not only okay to be soft and raw, but that it can be cherished, too. I want my work to be a beautiful, gold-gilded, tattooed symbol of our most real selves.
