NSFW

NSFW means “not safe for work”. It is often used as a way to label images of naked people. I agree that nudes are not safe work. In fact, looking at anything that isn’t related to work while at work is not safe to be doing when your boss walks in. Even Hello Kitty is not safe for work. I do not agree with the fact that more art shows, galleries, and websites are refusing to exhibit depictions of nudes. The contemporary art world is becoming more conservative than the Catholic church. They’ve had public displays of nudes for hundreds of years.

The following images are NSFW, but they are safe for home, teenagers, and any toddlers you may have looking over your shoulder. You know why? Because they are art. Stop being such a fuddy duddy.

A Series

Artemisia Gentileschi, the great Baroque artist, found the repetition of subject matter cathartic. Claude Monet, the visionary Impressionist, thought a subject could not be understood until it was painted multiple times. Andy Warhol, the renowned Pop artist, believed the more you make, the more you can sell.

In the spirit of the prolific artists that came before me, here are two more depictions of my mangled little foot.

Ouch

I’ve hurt my foot. As my bed is where I have been spending most of my time, the view from my bed has been my recent subject matter. Let’s hope I heal quickly, or drawings of my feet will consume my blog.
