Your Kiss Needs More Tongue
Opening Sunday March 7th from 2-4
Finissage March 27th 2-4
When I was a child, I would draw pictures of what I thought “sex” was in an effort to make friends, and then generously give those pictures away. My hope was that my expressions of sex would work their magic, and friendships would blossom. I recall these early drawings being conversations with myself; visually building a language that was trying to understand the complexities of adult relationships, social interactions, and gender. As I matured, so did the drawings, becoming more curious about the world, combining and converging into surreal perceptions of what “sex” was.
In this exhibition “Your Kiss Needs More Tongue” new characters are added to this motley crew! Included is a small works series “Dick Picks!” Intimate in size, these works play with obsession, repetition, favourite naughty bits, nick names and more naughty bits. The series responds to the COVID-19 pandemic by raising questions and awareness of lockdown, loneliness, “wankin’ in isolation”, “lookin’ for luv in all the wrong places”, and learning to love ourselves.
