Elaborately dressed and decorated bodies populate an interior scene of patterned excess in "Little Gold Man". Figures, genders, and objects blend together awash in acidic colors in what appears to be a private club. The print comes from a series of works of what Diane Gamboa characterizes as "futuristic urban royalty.” The space, though exclusive, is one of liberation for these androgynous individuals. They escape the violence of the outside world and embrace their sexual bodies donned with scars and ornamentation. Gamboa describes this scene as “a spectacle of the cultural netherworld of ‘outsiders’ who have chosen to include themselves in their own world where they can be dominant as well as fashionable.”
