The Serpent was Subtle
body of work proves that an artist’s confronting personal anxiety regarding identity, sexuality, gender rules and roles, and specifically, removing shame, liberates the divine spark of creativity within. All were necessary as I questioned the relevance of the role of the straight, white, male in contemporary art. It includes visual representations of human uniqueness as I considered my own thoughts about love, marriage, and equality. The work engages in the dialogue between ego and innocence or selfishness and empathy.
