Steve Khan: The Motion of light in water
Exhibition dates: June 17 to July 1, 2019
Reception: June 28, 2019 7-9pm
The drawings are of men fast asleep. They mimic Samuel Delaney’s autobiography The Motion of Light in Water- that documents his sexual exploits in New York from 1957- 1965. Rather than a written record, mine are visual. The men will be drawn with enough likeness to be read as a memory. The colour palette is light blue and teal waves crashing against sand. The titles of each drawing will record my thoughts and impressions of these men (and how they relate to myself) in block capital letters. This font implies my judgments are facts. The titles of the drawings and text pieces will encourage the viewer to laugh, which is my coping strategy for dealing with situations that make other people feel uncomfortable.
My intent is by through a daily visual record, to assert a normalcy of desire between men.
