The Whorror by TeaPartyGirl The Whorror by TeaPartyGirl
School project, 24x36", acrylic on canvas

Investigating one of my favourite themes of "the mechanical bride" - Marshell McLuhan's metaphor regarding the use of sex as a tool in advertising and media.

This is one of a 3 painting series. I'll post the others once they're finished ~

This is lovely and affecting. It reminds me of reading William T. Vollman, which is a wonderful compliment, if you ask me... Thanks for sharing!

I'd say this demonstrates what's good about school- you get assignments that push you to do stuff way out of your norm- &, also cool, is that you discover you CAN go way out of your norm. And survive. I'll be curious to see the rest of the series..and if you've been permanently warped:)

I think the hand is my favorite part. But the colors are doing it for me too.
