Wywnood Art Walk: APL & Framed Red Handed 

photo.jpg

Framed Red Handed was a performance piece amidst the live painting session. It was a commentary on the artist's feelings about the increasing suicide rates of gay teenagers in the Us reported in 2012. 

The artist framed himself inside of the stretcher bar, with hands painted in crimson red paint. He left an imprint of his red hands across the canvas. A Red light held inside his mouth would shoot light out at his work and passerbys. Leaning into the stretcher bar against the wall, in a sacrifical posture, staring into a graphic copy of his eyes. The artist moved in and out of his character, Glamdrew RichArt, an androgynous artist rock star.

One large and two small paitnings were accomplished. Works accomplished oduirng the Wynwood Art Walk in Miami, FL.

The main concepts driving both the painting session and the performance piece were not sufficiently conveyed at the time of their creation. Years have passed and no further clarity was given them. Until now. This page is an opportunity to set down the core concepts behind the these works. To present the vision for the work. In this way, the work is given a greater identity It's something the work deserves to have. A complement. And now, years later, with the inclusion fo this material, the work will find a greater completion as well.

Red Acrylic paint applied to both palms. It's a ritual.

I was very drawn to strong dramatic imagery. There's a certain cinematic quality to it. Certainly, there's component of shock value in it. There are streams and streams of people passing through one of the most  active areas of Miami at this time.

There is a very strong composition and lies at the center of the documentation.
