Souvenir 3.2

Cinders, “20 Year Survey of Southern Exposure,” Group Exhibition, Southern Exposure Gallery, San Francisco, California, 1995. This oil-and-encaustic painting incorporated cinders from burnt newspaper obituaries of people who had died during the AIDS crisis. For years, these obituary images filled pages of the weekly edition of San Francisco’s Bay Area Reporter (a local LGBT newspaper) and were a constant reminder of the tragedy that was unfolding.
