Description

The Toulouse-Lautrec of Times Square: Patrick Angus (b. 1953 in North Hollywood; d. New York, 1992) was the paintbrush-wielding chronicler of gay life in 1980s Manhattan. At a time when abstract and minimalist art reigned supreme, he chose to focus on figurative representational art. He painted and drew portraits, cityscapes, landscapes, and, time and again, scenes from the homosexual underground milieu. Yet rather than trying to make a political statement, Angus sought to articulate basic human needs, yearnings, and anxieties. His pictures are metaphors of the quest for his own identity and journey of sexual self-discovery. Long admired by insiders, the oeuvre of Patrick Angus, who died of HIV-related disease at the age of 38, has remained largely unknown in the larger art scene. The book--with essays by Tobias Bednarz, Sebastian Preuss, Sarah Donata Schneider, Douglas Blair Turnbaugh, and Anne Vieth--presents an in-depth survey of the artist's complete output.
