Zombie Pin Up Girls

Undead beauties. This series reacts to the way idealized images in our visual culture aggressively communicate to us with mixed and at times contradictory signals. Consumerism is a form of Zombie-ism.

Zombie Pin Up Girls Series
Our Culture is Awash in the Pornography of Suffering
The line from the sub-title above is from Evan Dorkin's amazing Milk and Cheese series and I always think of it when I consider the presentation of bodies in our visual culture. Are these idealized bodies somehow hollow and befowled by the airbrush and corporate messaging? Don't get me wrong: I'm a fan of idealized bodies from way back. I just think there's something that threatens to eat us alive in our visual culture and this is one way to get at it –confusing sex, attraction, and death.
