Ed Davis & Fuck This Life – SUCK ON THIS

$20.00

Printed on large format newsprint, SUCK ON THIS delivers graphic, monochromatic collages of photographs, film stills, and found imagery from popular culture in a psychosexual exposé on the sado-masochistic overtones of the horror film genre. The raw, claustrophobic compositions, much like Roman Polankski’s suffocating thriller Repulsion (1965), entrap the severed faces of screaming heroines and leering pin-ups amidst a cell of macabre imagery in a narrative of tense juxtaposition. Thematically, the lines between terror, desire, and laughter collapse in this series of unnerving tableaus, raising questions about the eroticization/cinematization of sexual violence.
