About the artwork:

As a child, I struggled with the sense that there was something inherently different about me, something that I knew others would perceive as wrong. Despite my efforts to change or even disguise those attributes which threatened to give away my secret, I discovered them to be overwhelmingly inseparable from my being. I believe that sexual orientation has genetic roots, and this painting addresses this belief as well as my youthful struggle to conceal what I perceived to be the darkness within myself.
