Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

This artwork is part of my latest series of paintings which depict scenes from Pride celebrations on Gay Beach in San Francisco. As a queer painter, I approach this environment with both insider and outsider perspective. I use this fluid positionality to decode intimate moments of friendship, camaraderie, solidarity and sex, emphasizing the performative nature of the event and the experience of being a participant within it.
