Graphite drawing, 4ft x 3.7ft, and red candle wax. 2016.
This piece explores the performance of prayer through the image of prayer hands conjoined together with red candle wax, as if the hands have been still in this position for an extended period of time. The joining of the hands implies a pain upon separation, an action of ripping the flesh. The title, Gash, references the feminine grotesque, the shape of the hands implying female anatomy.
