Stupid Love continues Harvey’s exploration into the idea of the perfect relationship and his own constant want and need for the fantasy to come to life. Looking under the umbrella of Queer Theory, he examines the idea of the monogamous relationship in terms of gay male sexuality and whether it can or will exist for him. He focuses not only the normative behavior but also the deviant lifestyle that often gets neglected, chastised and frowned upon. Drawing on information found in personal ads posted on dating websites, mobile dating/sex applications, and chat rooms.

sculpture by Angie Jerez

Angie Jerez moved to Atlanta from Bogotá, Columbia 8 years ago with a degree in graphic design. She has established herself as an illustrator and painter, creating detailed drawings, paintings and murals. She says, “I create drawings with detailed linework. My inspiration comes from random silly ideas, or from nostalgic memories. Sometimes, I find charm in objects and things that are usually ignored.”
