Images From The Triangle
The AIDS Paintings of Peter Harvey

These paintings (and select studies for the paintings), created over a 5-year period in the mid-1990s,
are the artist’s very personal response to the AIDS crisis.

Cyberotic
Large-format Oil paintings by SPIKE

These ten 4.5’ x 5’ paintings explore the visual and mental imagery of cybersex.

2,117 Days of Silence
An Installation by Nathaniel Siegel

This installation uses beefcake calendars and other materials to visually depict the more than
seven years that President Reagan failed to mention the AIDS crisis.

The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation, established in 1990, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering the awareness and appreciation of GLBTQ art that may not be exhibited due to prejudice and ignorance. Since its inception the Foundation’s gallery has presented over 200 exhibitions including hundreds of gay and lesbian artists whose work represents the fundamental view that “gay art” does exist and that the “gay/lesbian” artist has contributed immeasurably to our visual culture from prehistoric to ancient Greece to the contemporary era.

The Foundation has a considerable permanent collection of art, including, Andy Warhol, Duncan Grant, Delmas Howe, Jean Cocteau, Deni Ponty, Sonia Melara, Cassandra, Marsden Hartley, Horst, Bastille, Blade, Tom of Finland, Michael Kirwan, and many more.

TOM ON HIS WORK
"Yes, I consider my work pornography. Pornography means to stimulate peoples' sexual feelings, and I'm always very aware of that. My motive is lower than art." — Tom of Finland from the MSC Finland Website.
