Ringmasters & Fabulous Oddities

This Friday, July 6, my exhibit with Thomas Acevedo opens at the Lyman-Eyer Gallery in Provincetown. The reception begins at 7 PM, and the gallery is located at 432 Commercial St. Visit their website for more details. Here's a bit more about my new series that will be featured in the show:

With a nod to vintage circus, sideshow, and burlesque posters, my series Ringmasters & Fabulous Oddities portrays scantily-clad male figures as star attractions. Their roles are varied – from The Snake Charmer with his cool, seductive gaze to The Bear Tamer, shown losing control of his act (and his pants!). This series also features two contemporary male burlesque dancers, Tom DeLish and Bobbie Burlesque, both of whom entice their audience to new understandings of male sexuality. By placing men center-stage as both storytellers and objects of desire, I seek to challenge traditional ideologies around gender roles. And the sumptuous imagery of the big top provides a perfect setting for viewers to be dazzled and delighted in the process. Step right up...

If you are interested in purchase information for the original paintings, visit my page on the Lyman-Eyer Gallery website here. Limited-edition prints are also available through the gallery as well as my online store.

I'm really looking forward to bringing this circus to P-Town, and seeing the paintings of my talented fellow exhibitor, Thomas Acevedo. Hope you can join us too!
