"The Gay Green Energy Of FrankenGore"by Taco Werewolf
18"x24" acrylic painting on Masonite
Many people see Barack Obama as a symbol of hope and promise, thatBarack has become more than just a man but has transcended the fleshand essentially become a walking-- even floating-- idea.Barack even said so himself, that he sees himself as a symbol, an icon,a blank slate upon which the whole world projects its ideas of what isgood in the world. Many see in Barack sunny days filled with soft,fragrant flower petals; bright shining stars and green, fresh pasturesfull of sweet-smelling grass. Oh Barack Obama, our Hawaiian Tiki God!
Green pastures. Green energy. Does all of this equal green skin upon the face of Al Gore? Or should I call him FRANKENGORE?Hahahahaa. I was watching Al Gore's endorsement of Barack Obama lastJune and got the idea that all of the people and politicians who keeptalking about ways to free ourselves from foreign oil have fullyneglected the advantages of GAY POWER!! All of these imagesand fantasies of "fresh, clean energy" and world peace makes me thinkof the "Gay Pride Rainbow" with all of its nice, soft colors and howthese colors correspond to the colors of the ingredients of a taco. Redtomatoes. Green lettuce. Spicy orange hot sauce. All of these fineflavors and robust hues are present in the midst of honest,hard-working American gay men. In this painting I have them holdinghands, standing there in their underwear as their mutual love for oneanother and American values energizes their underwear. It sends voltsof electricity through their hands and blood and bodies and empowersthe world.
Al Frankengore stands there embracing our savior andHawaiian Tiki God, Barack Obama. Both men have underwear atop theirheads as a symbol of promise for alternative energy solutions. The gaylove ignites the tacos; it energizes the nation's underwear. It createsa beautiful multi-national, transglobal rainbow that hovers above ourheads. All of us men kiss one another. We hug one another despite thosein the world who would divide us. We can and will create the energywithin ourselves to turn the propellers of metaphorical wind turbines,if it only serves to symbolize the stirrings of our souls. It's justthat I feel the greatest, sweetest sorts of energy areto be found within our own bodies, in our internal rustlings and anunabashed love for our fellow man. This idea is seen most profoundly inthe important voting demographic of the gay community. I wanted to makethem a part of my "Obama Taco Underwear" painting series and this iswhat I came up with.
