Identity: American Gothic 2015

I am working on a series of images that play around with identity. Next to the Fatherland and With A Pearl I made American Gothic 2015. It is Inspired by the famous painting by Grant Wood. It is not just a parody as it is meant to be more than a funny change of the original. It is meant to be explored.

The essence of the picture is the two avatars. They are both male avatars with male hair and such. The only female part is their skin and, of course, the way they dress and your thinking. For it is your mind that tags gender on them.

Below is a link to the original.
