XXX Toys / 2019
From Sex Toy Subversion


           
XXX Toys draws from an abstracted grid, disguising sexual imagery amongst a camouflage pattern. Camp has been embraced its defence of subordinate forms, with the intention of dethroning the serious.

In order to transgress the prevalent societal stigmatisation of sex, we can begin by implementing a set of techniques which enable discourse through representation. The symbolism of glitter, camouflage, sex toys and camp become the conceptual foundations of this work.
