“The Watcher” by Robert S. Garza is an acrylic and spray paint piece on canvas.
From the artist: ” The Watcher is an entity I envisioned that represents the voice in the back of my mind throughout my life having hidden my sexuality for many years. It is ethereal, yet very substantial and it took form every time I felt the rush of secret attraction to classmates and friends I knew or TV and movie characters I quietly yearned for. He appeared as all the smoldering gazes I couldn’t keep out of fear for my safety. He was the seductive bare chest I wasn’t allowed to touch. He was Ephemera and he never judged, only watched.”
