Fruiting Bodies is inspired by a meditation on Charles Demuth’s “Pink Tulips,” (1930) – an understated watercolor found on the artist’s easel at the time of his death and painted concurrent to his homoerotic pencil drawings. Each of the four artist in this exhibition articulate a unique relationship to this motif – in proximity to the body, as a stand in for the body, as a frame for themes of sex and play, as the very image of life and death resembling each-other.
