"Orgao" - 2012 "Ink on paper" #afromysterics #laolunyc #sacredartoftheori #throwback
The piece is a visual representation of an individual at orgasm; that almost inexplicable moment at the zenith of pleasure. It shows a figure kneeling, caught in a vortex of intense emotion that almost seems to threaten to consume it. There appears to be some ambiguity to the gender of the figure, it has feminine contours and a phallic protrusion oozing black cum from between its legs, a black river of death akin to The Styx, a somewhat sinister tone - Osi Otsemobor “The mind cannot handle what the orgasm gives, it’s like the rapture comes and takes away all senses yet gives you even more at the same time. All the mind can do is shut down and go with the flow" (Naked Convos)
In every culture we have different perceptions, descriptions and ways of describing what an orgasm feels like, some of which we’ve tried to gather and document. I'm interested in your thoughts on what orgasm is in your culture and your thoughts on this piece. Please comment and share. Let's converse!
