About the artwork

For his Rainbow Aphorisms series, produced between 1993 and 1995, David McDiarmid co-opted the familiar spectrum of colour to complicate the ‘gay is good’ politics it had been associated with during the gay liberation movement, which stood in stark contrast to the devastation wrought by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
