I have donated artwork to benefit LGBT refugees. There are a ton of great artworks by many artists at accessible prices, and for what better cause? 100% proceeds go to refugees <3 <3 Here is the link to the digital catalogue: http://artcharity.de/ Photograph by Florian Hetz, o.T. 2016
January 19th, 2017. Obama’s last day in office and my opening at Google.
When we look at a painting we take the frame to be part of the wall, yet when we look at the wall the frame is taken to be part of the painting. Frames, envious of the attention bestowed upon the objects they are tasked to preserve and elevate. Corners, periphery yet structurally necessary and associated with punishment (standing in the corner), also occupy a base architectonic quality. These marginal spaces coalesce in this series of pictorial planes folding in on them selves.
This is series of works I explored while living in Berlin and then abandoned for a number of years. Only recently returning to the work at the suggestion of the Google Gallery curator, Allan Weinberger. Allan wasn’t the first to ask me to return to this series, but the timing was good. After a five year break from the series, I found myself returning to a number of theoretical concerns that originally lead me to this work. Aspects I thought I had resolved within myself , realizing these were deep-rooted recurring qualities or drives that never really leave a person. Namely, guilt and shame.

Stevie Hanley, “The Dainty Satanist,” as described by Vaginal Davis, has made a practice of carrying out the Mormon Mission he was never allowed to begin due to a failed church lead “sexual re-orientation” therapy. His works are engaged with intimacy, radical empathy, elevating psychic baseness and cosmic retribution.
