Cy is gay?
'You cannot fully understand Twombly's art unless you know that he is gay. It's often fatuous to reduce an artist to his or her sexuality, but Twombly is working in a tradition that associates homosexuality with an ideal human freedom. This tradition strives for an art unfettered by purpose, function, or meaning. You find such a style in Frank O'Hara's casual aimlessness and in John Ashbery's aimless obscurity - both poets think in the strokes of a subtle crayon......"
So I guess if an artist has playful, doodles of lines and pictures he or she must be gay? This review seems absurd and out of nowhere! I see no correlation between being gay and Twombly's work, unless it is used in the old fashion context of oh, how gay it is to draw with such vigor!
