Abstract: My drawing subject is the human form. I focus on my own body in my large scale, and text-related pieces. I also work from direct observation and invention. I am actively searching for ways to express my gender identity and sexuality. With the drawing, collage and free writing, I broaden my notions of what it means to reconstruct while I simultaneously deconstructing the human form. Creating the form in public reveals how it's created. The materials and public performance further aid me in my quest to establish and maintain my identity(s) as a gay black male. I am attempting to dissect and explore each facet of what it means to be a gay person and a person of color in the 21st century.
