Venus with Fruit
Venus with Fruit

28” x 18” x 8”

A reclining nude from art history is rendered as a decaying painting, while a tablecloth heavily laden with fruit spills out of a tear in the painting through the nude's abdomen. Abundant still lives in art history contained moral warnings against gluttony, and this piece renders the biblical phrase "fruit of the womb" literally. This piece was made as Roe vs. Wade was being overturned.
