Menfolk: Boys
2007
12x25 inches
The masked boy is a recurring figure in my Menfolk series. His mouth is covered with a damask handkerchief; there's a chick embryo on his hat; and he's wearing my old school uniform - a pale blue shirt with maroon sweater. It must be after hours because he's taken off his tie.

The sad little boy is alone; behind him two gorillas and a series of Superman figures.

Hand-painted stained glass panel from a body of work called Menfolk that explores maleness at various ages and in different emotional landscapes.
