About Me

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 StudiosA 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.
