nmga was created as a response piece to coming to terms which I created about the experience of coming to terms with my identity. This piece is a reactionary work to the notion that a gay artist may only create work discussing gay issues and politics. nmga was created as a way to both acknowledge who I am, whilst saying that I am more than what I create. This piece is a textual witness to myself as an artist to go beyond a narrative that exploits only the negative experiences faced without acknowledging the positive.
