Paradise Revisited (Upper Half)
Temple X, acrylic on canvas – full version 40X30X1.5 inches
This is only the top half, censored for overt eroticism (erection). View the full image here.
The Temples series was built around images which were burned into my mind, none more so than this one. This counterpart to “Rise to the Occasion” is also partially inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s “Paradise” — an erotic portrayal of humiliation in the Garden of Eden.
