December 2018

December 2018 - There's a very good and extensive article right now on "" called "Inside the 'Phallus Palace, Charles Leslie's Trove of Queer Art"... over his shoulder in this pic from the article is a drawing he bought from me of model Giovanni in a jock (under a very erotic Andy Warhol Felatio-scene Print I cropped out for my social media posts).  Charles is one of the people from my past most responsible for making me not shy away from presenting nudes or explicit content in my artwork, and he's one of the Founders of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art here in NYC.  Check it out!!  (Click the photo to be linked to the article).

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')!
