Swallow
2012

When a substance, material or emotion is overwhelming the body, it's sensation can be interpreted through a number of emotional and physical responses. Swallowing gallons of cold milk until the body cannot consume anymore is an endurance, a will to overcome the indulgence, it could be said by the passivity of the body to allow this to happen, the act transcends from pain into pleasure. The piece uses milk as a substance of sustenance, one that supports growth, linking to subcultural rituals of performed masculinity, and also serving as a visual metaphor of fetish and sexuality.
