“Plug Me In” A Series on Consumer Culture and Electronics Obsession”
Promiscuous is a long bodied creature with a plug for a head and an outlet between her legs. When she’s not keeping up with the latest software apps and observing the mental decay of reality TV, she
is jacking into the spines of her prey, enjoying the electric connection that have become a staple of
the society we live
in. This series is a collection of acrylic paintings that showcase Promiscuous in her natural environment. Composed of both cartoony visuals and subversive symbolism, her world is a land of wires and flesh, connections and consumption. She may be blind and deaf, but her “computer mice” are wired into the fabric of everything in the world…they act as her eyes and ears as well as her method of finding and catching prey. Her prey of choice? The general populace of course! Wired into their iPads and headphones, they are the ones staring into glowing screens and hooked on the
pleasures of a digital space that cannot be avoided. It’s no wonder Promiscuous has so many wires and can’t seem to get enough. So many outlets to fill, yes…let’s all plug
and enjoy the chaos!
