Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

Far-red is light at the extreme red end of the visible spectrum, just before infra-red light. This work was created for 'Seeing Red', an Exhibition curated by Jeff Hamada (aka. Boooooom) at Thinkspace Projects in Los Angeles, CA.

A few months ago I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. This has prohibited me from being able to paint, so for this work I experimented by attaching my brushes to my wrist splint and using my arm and shoulder to paint instead of my hands. The result is a highly textured, loose style which is an exciting, experimental direction.

This portrait explores the boundary between realism and abstraction to highlight the layers and complexity of queer identity, allowing viewers to cast their own interpretations and inviting them to see themselves in the work.
