Original CMYK Silkscreen Print - Edition of 7
Although the sources of pleasure change throughout life, the principles never really do: you do not need it, you will always want more, and too much will kill you. Desperate Pleasures explores the inherent juvenile aspect to hedonistic pleasures, and specifically, the pleasure of consumption. In this series of screenprints, images that bring to mind the supposedly wholesome pleasure of childhood are juxtaposed with images of the mind-altering pleasures of adulthood, associated equally with joy and with death.
