This piece means so much to me. The man presents the beauty and horror of masculinity ,and the love I have for it. All at once he becomes every man I've get loved. The smell of the flesh behind his neck is as close to God as you could ever get. Ken Howard starred in a film alongside a scarred Liza Minnelli, that film is" Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon." The wardrobe is styled for Ken. He plays a mentally ill, impossibly beautiful man. I wanted to live with him when I was little. On the right side of the panel the scene is a battle of genes identity and sensual sex. Penis and vagina and nipples and fat and morphed bodies and faces. From the time I can remember until I was 15 I played with my gender. Around 15 I figured out that I'm comfortable identifying as a man. Femme and fashionable and fat and ugly all fit into my identity. The painting is called Voyeurism, or Vada These Naf-Omis Ajax Darling ,Drive; Order a Basket Reconfiguration on The Bottom OmiPalone.
That polari translates to "look at these bad boys near Darling Drive; the bottom fag needs a transsexualism." Even if the frame did break, I couldn't part with this painting for less than $1275. My ceiling is $1500. I want to see this in the home of people who understand it deeply and apply the meanings of sexuality and gender and lust and self loathing and self love to their lives.
Is this the best painting done or the best painting I'll ever do? No. It is, however, the most complete and articulate expression of my emotion at a given time. That is what is important.
I can take PayPal and ship if you pay the calculated shipping. I can take payments for this piece ( even though I so dearly need the money). If you're local I can take cash or a check and deliver it. If going to be around in the near future, you can send a check and pick it up when you get into the area.
Thank you. -Dustin
