Faith Holland, ‘Ookie Canvas 'Sub/emissions'’, 2015, Transfer Gallery

Ookie Canvases are “paintings” composed of cum shots sampled from pornography or submission isolated from their background, colorized, and collaged together to form an all-over composition. By using cum shots, I can appropriate the phallus in order to infiltrate a male-dominated medium. The Sub/emissions canvas is composed entirely of images sent to me in response to an open call via email and anonymous dropbox. Some responses are collected in this zine that accompanies the work.
