Cool. Another place to rant about this... ;)

(Personally, I wouldn't separate the database entries for the study from the OG and the final print, but hey...)

They actually are two different paintings of the same --errr--subject though.

One is a "study" for the other, same as when a print is a "print" from an "OG"... but hey, I just wanted to be clever... ;)

The first Cluster Study was cool but did not really appeal to me. I like edgier and even controversial subject matter... But that first study seemed to be about Finding Homosexual Love in a Dachau Death Camp circa 1942 as men were parsed out from the women and children for the remainder of their short lives. I imagine not many connect with this image (just saying there's a stigma associated with either the WWII holocaust and/or gay pajama orgies as others have more eloquently observed).

This final Cluster is more spherical and the setting is no longer Nazi Germany (It's a wonder how the pajama stripes do matter). And so I instantly interpreted this as some kind of commentary on overpopulation. But... I'm probably wrong.
Image

I suspect the nude Cluster in the Pale Memory piece was Jeremy Geddes' depiction of the powerful collective we've come to know as the Gay-For-Geddes groupie contingent (2nd in influence only to Mondo myopia) on the world renowned Expresso Beans art site. It could easily have been titled Hype Machine.

Surprised that no one on here has yet claimed to owning a large format one yet. Thought there might have been one or two on here by now.

Somebody posted that they got one.
I always thought it was this guy tossing and turning during the night. He's not going to feel very rested in the morning.
