An art event and CLOVEROTICA zine release party.
When God punished Adam and Eve by making them ashamed of their nude bodies, that really pissed me off. The Secret Garden of Eden celebrates all that we are conditioned to keep private. Our bodies, our desires, our morbid curiosities... these things are as natural as the lush flora setting where they became taboo. It is natural because they come from within us and is part of our humanity. Why should we feel ashamed of pieces of ourselves?
Content will be inspiring, arousing, provocative, and offensive :) subjects include sex, violence, gore, mental illness, obsessions, death, confessions, fetishes, and of course, the human body. I invite artists to explore these topics through painting, drawing, photography, digital art, mixed media, installation, and live performance.
