    About The Work

    The painting, “Often and Not Alone, Work One (A Monument to QUEER Martyrs & Saints),” by Christopher Stout was one of four Queer abstract works exhibited at Lichtundfire October 2018 in a group show titled “Minimal Impact,” and dedicated to “the sparsity of the application, delicate expression, or subtle reference resulting in a powerful conceptual language.”

    The work was accomplished through the creation of nine molded plaster cylinders, which were affixed to a quadrilateral-shaped museum panel; and then violently pried off to leave markings. This panel was then affixed to another Belgian linen-lined panel; whereupon the work was finally preserved with both oil and acrylic paint, enamel, and rabbit skin glue.

    This painting (including its creation process) serves as a reminder of the utopian and hopeful world of Queer art which was being created in New York City during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s (a decade after Stonewall), and the artists from this period who were lost during the onset of the AIDS plague.
