Liable to be Sated | acrylic on sodomy
People have interpreted this piece as the end of a homosexual act. Although it appears so, my intent was to illustrate purity, happiness, and knowledge. Notice that the books and papers have been actively studied (as if searching for something both academically and physically), but the TV sits unused? Each person is also portrayed as thinking. The man in the background stares intently at the forest, the man on the couch is bathed in light (knowledge), and the man on the floor has a look of happy concentration (underwear was added to him later for political reasons).
A few points of interest are the Big Brother eye on the TV, the Holy Liable (hence the title) on the floor, and the edge of a picture of deodorant on the right wall.
