Metal sculpture in Response Joel Peter Witkin
ˈembrēˌō/ is a response to a photographic image Arm Fuck 1982, (Caution Photograph is ADULT content) that turned back in on itself to create a photographic exploration and drawings for deep thinking.
Joel Peter Wilkins image was burned onto my retina as if I had watched a house, with children inside screaming, burn to the ground.
The photograph followed me in my thoughts, a haunting agitation packing a punch to the stomach as if in mid-sentence leaving me gasping for air with internal questions.
Wilkins did his job stimulating me.
The sculpture has many accompanying photographs from around the world and drawings that contemplate questions of being human and morality.
