This series paintings was created using semen and acrylics. Each symbol, the scorpion, bio-hazard, and red ribbon are common tattoo iconography HIV+ gay men may get to indicate their positive status. Just over 4 oz. of semen was used per painting. The red spots on the Scorpion and Bio-hazard paintings are actual HIV+ semen and the gold spots on the Red Ribbon painting are HIV+. These paintings were created as a reminder that we all come in contact with people every day who are HIV+. Unlike the 70's, 80's and early 90's, Being HIV+ is no longer a death sentence. Today people are living Positive, Long, Healthy lives.
