• Drella Portraits

A series of photographs made with Raja Feather Kelly in which Raja plays Drella, the drag alter ego of Andy Warhol.
The photographs accompanied Raja’s movement-based drag performance essay – “Andy Warhol’s DRELLA (I Love You, Faye Driscoll.”
Beyond the focus of Warhol’s legacy, DRELLA addresses Kelly’s concerns with identity, sexuality, and self-worth. In his Vogue-Ballet, Kelly creates a surreal world; a gender-bending, race-shifting, multi-medium “Artsploitation” in response to today’s consumer culture and celebrity worship.
