Sheena, I couldn’t choose just one painting for you, but I knew immediately that you remind me of contemporary painter Summer Wheat. Her work has a heaviness of paint application, a specific color scheme, an idea of immediacy and something unapologetic that makes me think of you.
here’s my unpopular opinion of the night: it embarrasses me when teenagers in college classes write essays on “queer readings” of really established pieces of literature without doing any prior research because 90% of the time what ends up happening is that they’re still upholding a really antiquated work and allowing people to shy away from the uncomfortable reality that their faves hated gay people. i think thats a shitty way to queer academia. like i am sick and tired to that “the jock who beat up the gay kid is secretly gay” idea that pervades our culture. maybe ernest hemingway wasn’t just secretly into dick maybe ernest hemingway was genuinely a fucking asshole who get the heebie-jeebies when he thought of The Gays. shouldn’t that opinion make academia more uncomfortable than the idea that he was like, secretly gay? it’s so shitty that someone being queer is the being groundbreaking “change everything you know about this artist” reveal. maybe instead let’s try to create a society where were are made more uncomfortable by homophobia than by gayness. thanks
