I am profoundly honored and exhilarated to announce that the Saatchi Art Gallery has included three of my artworks in their captivating collection, Beyond the Rainbow – Pride in Portraits. Aurora Garrison, Senior Curator, and Erin Remington, Manager of Art Advisory & Curation at Saatchi Art, have selected Hiding the Tracks 8, Red Line 5, and Electric Cowboys alongside fifty other remarkable artworks to commemorate Pride Month. Below, you can find the statement of this digital exhibition.

“Each June, we celebrate LGBTQ+ activism in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, when demonstrators rose up in protest of a police raid on New York City’s Stonewall Inn—a bar that served as a safe haven for the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities. Since then, cities, organizations, and companies have paid homage to those whose lives have been defined by and lost in the ongoing struggle for LGBTQ+ rights. Most often, LGBTQ+ pride is visualized in the symbol of the rainbow. While the rainbow signals shared identity, community, and allyship, lived experiences transcend symbols and slogans. This Pride Month, Saatchi Art seeks to highlight artists whose portrayal of LGBTQ+ life goes beyond the rainbow in an acknowledgment that despite increased representation, many aspects of queer experience are still rendered invisible or one-dimensional. In Beyond the Rainbow: Pride in Portraits, we showcase pioneering artists rendering the invisible visible through portraiture.”

Special thanks to Aurora and Erin for choosing and showcasing my artwork. It’s truly a pleasure.
