Entry Description

Art History endeavors to seduce the viewer through its ostentatious aesthetic in order to address grotesque underlying themes such as sexuality, gender roles, taboo and the power dynamics situated therein. The aesthetic/topical dissonance aims to elicit an uneasy response in order to subvert the implicit authority and sanctity of the icon.
