Temptation of Lamb | acrylic on canvas
Part of the Meat Series, this piece is about Tres using meat as a "platform" to corrupt humanity. Corruption in this instance has a prevailing sexual undertone (emphasized by the naked person holding up the lamb, the cow utter, and the cheap motel setting), but loss (the shepherd in outside the window), dispare (the alcohol on the table), and mystery (the abduction of the lamb in the picture behind the bed) are also present.
The meat grade is a reference to a girl I know.
