A Boy Named Patience Softcover signed & numbered copies 1-10 (includes an 8"x10" print)
"A BOY NAMED PATIENCE" presents selected works of visual artist René Capone, created between the years 1997 & 2018. Capone’s work incorporates diverse depictions of the gay male body as he explores themes of truth, beauty, love, romance & sexuality. Opening this book, you will find a veritable secret garden of images of the male body, ranging from pictures of gay men in an almost Edenic relationship with nature, to pieces that seem to suggest abjectness, sacrifice and loss. Capone’s work feels deeply mystical and calls to mind icons and other works of sacred art. 8×10 in, 21×26 cm
240 Pages, 358 paintings & drawings, 48 poems by Mr. Dave Russo.

This soft cover version comes with a 8"x11" print of the image titled "Touch" shown here in the last of the thumbnails.
In addition to the artist’s visual work, he has also included in this volume sprinklings of work by poet, DAVE RUSSO, which serve to provide emphasis narrative and counterpoint when paired with Capone’s visual art. Deeply respectful of language, René Capone views the written word as the recollections of those who have traveled similar paths, allowing him to, in his own words, “find my way through the forest.” A volume that should be perused carefully and at length, A Boy Named Patience, is a stunning collection of sensory experiences: a feast for the eye and the ear. I suggest that you begin pouring over the pages immediately, along with Capone, as together you find your way through the forest.
