Love Is…
graphite and acrylic on paper
10 x 14 in.

I am interested in subtle power struggles between people and particularly in relationships that dance around dominant and subodinate behavior. Pin-up girls and housewives become seduced by the peverse and take on the role of co-conspirator or dominatrix.

Indulgence in and enjoyment of bad behavior is portrayed, not in a manner that is attempting to moralize, but in a way that recognizes and flaunts the human tendency to indulge in the unwholesome. The drawings explore ways that seduction, reward, humiliation and punishment are employed and exercized.
