painting loosely inspired by the Stele of Revealing (a.k.a Stele of Ankh-af-na-Khonsu), as well as my perverse amusement with garishly saturated colors
“The Groom Is Still A Virgin” acrylic, I think I did it in 2009. I got to hang it in Mars Bar before the evil mayor swallowed it’s soul.
I did this one afternoon last summer as Eric was napping (our building sure as hell isn’t warm enough for anyone to sleep in the nude around now), because I was struck at how completely beautiful he is, and had this uninterrupted time to study every detail of his form…yeah he can be a deep sleeper. Luckily for me he likes the painting and is ok with me sharing it in with my other work, which is as close as I’ve come to convincing him of how beautiful his form is…he says he can “see where I see that from this painting.”
Alchemically speaking, about the idea of moving towards a more universal gender identity through unity. Which I don’t have too much time to write about this second :p
Completely Safe For Great Work, if not corporate exploitatative work.
