Artwork / 2021
2021 was all about healing. The commissions and personal paintings shown in this gallery were certainly part of that, as were the silly GIFs I made out of my own artwork and the brand new series about mental health that I began work on.
Then, too, there was the fact that I exhibited my work in a public library for the first time since my art was censored by that institution in 2019. I was pleased to do a couple of talks to celebrate the show at the Princeton Public Library—this one about my queer identity and this one addressing the way censorship plays out for artists—along with a motivational presentation about art and money for Venture Café Philadelphia.
In 2021 my work also earned write-ups in The Press of Atlantic City, South Jersey Magazine, and the Asbury Park Press for Lifesavers Fan Art, a project that I keep hoping will become obsolete in the near future.
