My cowboy drawings are about tenderness and play. The men
depicted may, or may not, identify as queer.
This is a new take on masculinity and desire.
I am not depicting the effete and nervous homosexual here,
hounded secretly by society into submission. These are guys
having fun with the act of love (kissing) at their centre. My bro’s are having the time of their lives proudly and in public.
The playfulness of the bondage series, should not be too
shocking. It is about queerness at play. About bonds of intimacy, care and affection that stretch our idea of what homosexual attachment means among men.
Of course these drawings contain idealisation. I sing myself
present in the process of drawing each lover.
However I decided early on in this series, to ignore the particular tastes of a viewing public, and to literally “go for broke”.
