Views III is a fine art critique on the human experience 


The third movement of the Views collection is focused on dialogue. It is a point/counterpoint exploration of communications, technology, and queer sexually. Images and handwriting create a visual environment where language reveals varying perceptions from viewpoints that may be any assortment of straight to queer, celebratory to predatory, religious to lecherous, or supportive to radical. 



These narrative landscapes are physically layered over ink paintings, raised by just a few centimeters. Duality is present in all the works, which seem to argue with one another on symbolism and meaning. 


This hybrid reality recalls the layered existence of queer masculinity. The paintings explore the objectification of the human experience, using a visual language of power, light, and sexuality. The encounters—from online comments to locker room glances—are recognizable to a contemporary audience because they are harvested from our post digital reality. 
Each of the works is paired with its cut companion piece, offering an attempt to reconstruct context, while simultaneously emphasizing the solitary nature of holding a single view. 


There are three sizes of works in Views III: 10 x 10, 12 x 18, and 18 x 24. They are all acrylic ink and sharpie pen layered beneath hand-written, internet-based, narrative poetry.
