Art that makes you think

“Sweet Meat” by Elizabeth Raits

Her artist’s statement: “Simultaneously seductive and repulsive, these pieces explore and expose the dichotomy between toxicity and desire. Body juxtaposes excessiveness – while desire speaks in sweets. As skin and desert blur together, pornographic imaging emerges. These studies are an exploration of a voyeuristic attraction to the grotesque and the way in which it is experienced.”

Elizabeth Raitz’s video presentation, “Sweet Meat,” can be seen in the Hagnauer Gallery.
