Hunter Reynolds, Love Light, 1992-1994(224 views)
Description: Hunter Reynolds, b. 1959, is an American visual artist and AIDS activist based in Los Angeles. For almost thirty years, Reynolds has been working to express his experience as an HIV-positive gay man living in the age of AIDS. His work has engaged with gender identity, body politics, personal and sexual histories, mourning, loss, survival, hope and healing. In his work, one sees the artist's particular strength at forging hope and beauty out of the sometimes dark totality of life. Amidst his large body of work in varying mediums such as performance, photography and installations, Reynolds is also keenly known for some of his large-format works called "photo-weavings." These are formed by physically sewing together hundreds of smaller photographs. Though stunningly beautiful, the photographs that make up these pieces often document emotionally difficult and trying subject matter. This is one such example title, "Love Light" from the early 1990's. Hunter Reynolds has exhibited his work at museums and galleries widely in the US and abroad. He has been the recipient of many grants residencies including a Pollock Krasner Grant. As an AIDS activist, he was an early member of ACTUP and in 1989 co-founded Art Positive, an affinity group of ACT-UP, to fight homophobia and censorship in the arts.
