“Safe Sex” 安全”性”– 50x61cm- Oil on Canvas, 2004
Safe Sex – classic Eastern religion iconography, with added medical masks. The idea of sexual intimacy acting as a release into the bliss of divinity – death of self and birth of deity – is common in many religious traditions. When we selfishly seek to preserve our own safety, and are unwilling to lose control in a relationship, do we miss out from this form of divine union?
