I’m rarely intrigued by queer art. Because it usually just literally focusses on the subject or representation without references to art forms itself. But artist Tom de Pekin, who I just happened to find on web, seems to achieve a certain language, seemingly effortless, combining some contradictions from the history of painting. You might know his art from the poster for the film “Stranger by the Lake” (org. “L’inconnue Du Lac”) Honesty, sadness and vulnerability. Inspiring!
