DO WHAT THOU WILT, Richard Hawkins

Los Angeles CA, 2014-15
Acrylic & Collage on Canvas

Among the various contemporary Queer artists of my generation who paint, I am particularly fond of the work done by Richard Hawkins; and I especially like this group of paintings he did a couple of years ago.  His palette is pretty bright and the brushwork fairly loose and it all looks fresh and unmediated.  It also comes off as not unskilled.  The titles are smart and funny too.
