Roman Fine Art presents F#CKBOYS, a new series of erotically investigative paintings and found objects by Brooklyn-based artist Alexandria Lira.

Using a framework based on traditional portraiture, Lira meets her subjects through Tinder – a platform where speed, vulnerability and sexual stakes are pushed to their extremes – in order to portray a raw and intimate expression of men in their private dwelling spaces. Lira approaches her conquests-cum-subjects much as an anthropologist observes an undiscovered tribe: with care and respect, and added bravery in the face of unchartered first contact. Though her subjects know from the first message that they will be photographed, there still exists an inherently sexy danger posed by venturing into unknown territory, especially for a solo female artist cruising a hookup app in the name of art.
