The Curious About Caleb

The Curious About Caleb

“Expressions of Empathy” (Volume I)
Oil on Canvas
A dashing & debonair young gent, Caleb always appears to be. Known about in certain circles, and always the star of the scene; yet in a broader perspective of society, his dapper image becomes somewhat skewed to the judgemental, queer to the ignorant, and perverse to the prejudice. All around him figures whisper and point fingers like loaded guns of ridicule. His smooth and flawless attire is graced by a sauntering walk, and a gentle voice; somewhat feminine, and threatening to many. Perhaps the insecure male questioning his own masculinity by overstating each gesture and stance, wonders. Perhaps the arrogant female that clutches to the arm of her male companion (while cutting her eyes Caleb’s way) becomes intimidated. The questions remain and refrain… “What does he have that I don’t have?” “What makes him so comfortable being that way.” The answer is simple really, confidence. Caleb knows who he is, and loves himself with an unwavering security.
