My lips on a skewer 5 love potion composition. This particular piece is about our desperate need to not be alone and the resulting stash of variations on the same experience that we accumulate.
Part of The Art of Prostitution project, born out of conversations I've had with artists selling on NYC streets. The work many artists are selling panders to their idea of what sells. So I decided to sell art with my body parts as a commentary on the aforementioned practices and engage more honestly. I’m a sculptor turned pimp. YOU are the John. Signed and numbered limited edition.
I’m a sculptor-turned-pimp doing a performance and visual art fusion piece. AND YOU are the John. The Art of Prostitution project was born out of conversations I've had with artists selling work on the streets on NY. The work many are selling openly panders to their idea of what's marketable. Effectively these artists are prostituting themselves in a dishonest fashion. I decided to sell art with my body parts on the streets and online. This project is a commentary on the aforementioned artistic practices but it also goes deeper and explores several sub-stories. The breast series is a sequence of 4 images telling a story of ascension and transformation. The genital series explores the 4 elements. Finally the sheath series is about our consumption of social constructs.
