PROUD+ 2022 The Studio Door celebrates the fifth year of PROUD+ with a two month visual arts exhibition of LGBTQIA+ artists working across the United States. For the first time, the exhibition is being expanded to cover both Pride month nationally (June) and San Diego’s celebrations in July. As visibility is important to our community, the participating artists are allowing the gallery to identify how they define themselves. The plus symbol is meant to be inclusive to those who prefer not to be limited by any specific definition. The Studio Door is Hillcrest’s premiere art gallery in San Diego, California. The gallery and artists studios is gay owned and operated. Previous exhibition catalogs are available to flip through online at TheStudioDoor.com website.

THE STUDIO DOOR PROUD+ 2022 Over the years George rehearsed coming out to his parents for what felt like a million times. Sitting in the living room mother and father standing before him. Nerviously clutching the arms of his chair, his heartbeat pounding in his ears, the room began to spin. Biting his tongue, for the time being, he reemained silent with his secret still on the tip of his tongue waiting to explode.

FEATURED ARTIST • STEFAN TALIAN


THE STUDIO DOOR PROUD+ 2022

“The human physique has always fascinated me. Exploring it on canvas is a journey to those places hidden within...”

Stefan Talian is fascinated with the transient nature of human emotions and the dichotomies that arise from within our human nature. The series CAPTURED EMOTIONS is a collection of 18 artworks that reveal a specific moment of vunerability and unguarded emotional states; primarily focusing on the male subject who is culturally conditioned to hide these emotions. Talian’s signature use of black and white seemingly heighten these psychological states. As the artist uncovers these intimate flashpoints, we are allowed to experience the raw emotions that are momentarily exposed. Talian created the series with the guidance of master artist Sir Daniel Winn and premiered the works at Winn Slavin Fine Art in Beverly Hills. 60
