vcussp (2015)

(vulgar carnal undertakings, succulent slimy portions) This is a collection of the work that I completed during my time doing the summer studio program at Virginia Commonwealth University, summer of 2015. In making this work, I was most interested in exploring themes of indulgence, sex, power, disgust, shamelessness, and sadness. Also, I was trying to push sexual content in a very explicit way. I was curious to see what that would do the abject and inviting nature of these creations. Supersexhibition video: joshroach.com/videos/supers... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
