This past Thursday I found some artwork I was interested in. To be honest, I was most interested in the type of art. The pieces displayed used needle point. Basically it looked like he sewed together these tiny works of art. After further research I discovered something that I didn’t even notice. Lee’s work is inspired by homoerotic scenes. He enjoys studying what people in the gay community are interested in sexually such as fetishes. He also paints, he uses a gay dating site for inspiration. Using the small profile picture and other posts, he recreates the images that these people use to look sexually attractive to other users of this website. Though his backstory isn’t a shared interest, I really admire how detailed his art work is. I don’t think I could create something so meticulously.
