Pierced Drawing No. 1Pierced Drawing No.1

19 x 26″.  Pastel and ink on paper.  The first in a series of ten drawings of piercings.

14 x 20″. Watercolor, aquarelle and colored pencils, pastel.  The last of a series of ten drawings with piercings.  I don’t know what inspired me to do the first few pierced drawings nor have I thought of anything clever to say about them post production.  Toward the end of the series I started poking the stainless steel ball piercing into anything sitting around simply for the absurdity and ended up with the Pierced Pear.


“I just don’t want to die without a few scars, I say. It’s nothing any more to have a beautiful stock body. You see those cars that are completely stock cherry, right out of a dealer’s showroom in 1955, I always think, what a waste.” Tyler Durden (Chuck Palahniuk), Fight Club
