Violence is Sexy

Violence is Sexy

2012, Colored Pencil on Paper

For this piece, I combined language from nuclear war with the most offensive sexual insults that one can say in the English language. I structured the drawing like a sports bracket, with a word from each pair “winning” and moving on to the next level of the bracket. The central form / pattern represents the area of the brain where sex and violence originate – the hypothalamus. It’s a place in the mind where violent impulses and sexual impulses may not be properly segregated from each other.
