fag·ot
ˈfaɡət/
noun
noun: faggot
a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel.-

The actual meaning of Faggot is a bundle of sticks, most commonly used as fire wood.
These days, 'Faggot' is used as a derogatory term for a homosexual. During the Salem trials, it was widely believed that one of the only ways to kill a witch was to burn her. Many, however, took this further, saying that the only way to kill a witch was to use the fire of a burning homosexual, (Homosexuals being regarded by the church as practically just as bad as witches) and therefore gays would be placed onto the fire below the witch, using them in the same way as a bundle of sticks, bringing around the term 'Faggot'.- Urban Dictionary

Mayor's Arts Award: Akio Takamori


Akio Takamori’s work is unmistakable. Like watery sumi drawings sprung to life, his ceramic figures are painted with unfired glaze that drips down flushed cheeks and splashes elbows and knees. His subjects range from Japanese villagers to figures snatched from the canons of art history—like the famous, pannier-clad princess from Velazquez's "Las Meninas." With ethereal frailty, his characters teeter between caricature and spectre, as white and weightless as air, yet weighted with immense, earthen gravity. In response to receiving the 2015 Mayor’s Arts Award for Arts & Innovation, Takamori praises the community that shaped him with characteristic generosity.

Roman Polanski on "Rosemary's Baby" - Conversations Inside The Criterion Collection

Noah Davis

Siamese Fantasy, 2009
Oil on canvas
48 ½ x 48 ½ inches
Noah Davis, a painter and installation artist who founded the Underground Museum, an exhibition space in a working-class neighborhood of Los Angeles that provides free art shows, died on Saturday at his home in Ojai, Calif. He was 32.
He learned he had cancer a few years ago, his family said in confirming the death.
Mr. Davis’s paintings were mostly figurative works depicting blacks in surreal landscapes, sometimes with their features distorted or smeared in a manner reminiscent of Francis Bacon. He drew inspiration from sources as varied as Richard Brautigan’s 1968 novella “In Watermelon Sugar” and “The Jerry Springer Show.” NYTIMES article.
