“Stuart Black was a homosexual. His art is intrinsically linked to homosexuality. It is ultimately an art of overtly sexual images and motifs, though unlike his near contemporaries, Juan Davila, David MacDiarmid, Vivienne Binns and Peter Tully, he does not figure in the histories of Australian art, let alone Australian gay culture. This is not unusual in the development of canons of taste. Homosexuals are typical ghostly presences, talked about by friends and remembered sometimes fondly, but until recently, rarely acknowledged and documented.”
