Inside the Phallus Palace: Understanding the Art Collection of Charles Leslie

Due to the visibility and power of the LGBT movement, it’s difficult for many to look without seeing male nudes in anything but a homoerotic context. In The Art of Looking (Bruno Gmünder), author Kevin Clarke examines that progression by analyzing the life and collection of Charles Leslie, one of the key people who collected and supported artists who made homoerotic work from the 1950s to today, especially through the times of the AIDS crisis and official government homophobia during the Reagan years. Leslie's voracious need to collect was an act of emancipation and liberation, and it culminates in his New York City SoHo apartment, “the phallus palace,” with its horde of artwork that includes a coffee table of crystal and ceramic penises and ancient Japanese dildos.

After 10 Years Of Slowly Dying, I Finally Found The Cause, And Now I See Abstract Art Whenever I Close My Eyes.

10 years. 10 years of very slowly dying from a number of autoimmune issues, something that doctors couldn’t put their finger on. Finally, in 2011, I found my health, by uncovering the culprit for my unexplained issues (gluten, for those who are curious). When that happened, and I started healing, my brain sort of re-wired. I’d close my eyes in the shower, and I’d see abstract art.

One of the most famous faces in the world Frida Kahlo (born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter whose self-portraits beautifully and honestly expressed the female form in a new way. Self-taught, Kahlo created at least 140 paintings, as well as dozens of drawings and studies. The great artist died in 1954 and was cremated, while an autopsy was never done, it was determined that her official cause of death was a pulmonary embolism.

Student: (I think) his style (David Cope's style) puts forth the position of being an observer rather than it being (creative). Instead of things coming out of the mind, the poet simply reflects what he sees..)AG: I think it's a semantic question, actually. I mean, you know, he doesn't simply reflect what he sees because, you see, you have to pick out something to see, or something is picked out to see.
