January 2018

January 2018 - OK, so this is the artwork I did in the early 90s when I was real young that a friend had bought at the time, & I hadn't seen it since, but he donated it to the Silent Auction for the "Visual AIDS POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE" show this upcoming weekend.  It's an oil painting on prepared paper of an old fiend of mine from the ACT-UP days, Mark Allen.  Context to note is that this was done before HIV retrovirals that now keep people alive existed, so the subject was him demonstrating how to put on a condom at a time people needed to know this more than ever.  Also, although it was a dark room and I only blocked the face in, I always liked that I could tell it was Mark from the shape of his head, etc... Anyway, nice to see it surface again on a Chelsea Gallery wall & it will be on display at the benefir next weekend that I mentioned in the last post, and people from out-of-town can also place a bid online (click the image to be linked to the Visual AIDS online auction, powered by 'Artsy')!
