Giving the deceased a second life is a fundamental aim of Matt Lipps, who has always felt profoundly affected by the premature deaths of legions of gay men at the peak of the AIDS crisis. As a teenager he had felt a deep longing for the beautiful faces and bodies he saw in magazines and posters, and these glossy idols would become the primary vehicle for his art.
