Touch This: Physical intimacy has always been something I related to as being a way to connect to others internally. This self portrait was in response to how physical intimacy within the gay community especially with tools such as Grindr, is much more about a temporary exchange of goods rather than connection. The figure contrasts between being ethereal and cadaver like in composition with an extremely soft rendering. The hollow quality of the body is in reference to me questioning whether or not our surfaces can be navigated by others without internal connection.
Acrylic on paper, 5x6 inches
Acrylic painting is weird to switch to after painting in oil for so long. I finally tried some of the Liquitex cadmium free acrylic paints I got from @deserres at @artistprojectto. I’m really impressed with the performance! The cadmium equivalents were still more saturated and stronger, but not by a long shot. Now if only somebody made cadmium free oil paints. 😂
