In Between Days (Without You) (1998) 15 C-type prints

A “critic” once accused me and this body of work as simply copying Felix Gonzalez-Torres.  It was actually a reaction to FGT’s billboard/bed pieces which were displayed in Los Angeles in 1994.  I viewed his bed/billboard as a safe, monogamous, coupled bed filled with longing and domesticity. I just wanted to present an alternative… a sexy, promiscuous (there are over 20 beds) and sex-positive side of a gay life (mine).
