Through the reflection on and use of traditional portraiture, Cobi Moules creates a space for personal significance and a trans and queer presence. The repetition of the self-portrait becomes a way of both documenting and aggrandizing singular moments within a larger process of transition. Each portrait, with new physical changes and subtle internal shifts, exists as a singular direct monument within a larger group of time and progression.
