Harmony Hammond about the book: “Cultural Confluences, a long-overdue survey of Lenore Chinn’s large-scale photo-realist portrait and commemorative paintings, illuminates her career as an artist and as an activist in San Francisco s diverse LGBT and Asian American communities (indeed they are not separate)… Chinn’s loving and intimate acrylic portraits of individuals and same-sex couples, render visible and luminous subjects whose cultural identities are multiple and complex. Chinn and her work are inspirational!”

NB! The fact that an artist is mentioned in Feminine Moments’ bibliography it is of course no guaranty that she will be lesbian, bisexual or queer tomorrow, nor that the authors of the above books are “out and proud” in their writings…
