I Popped The Cherry, But I Did Not Sell My Dignity
With I Popped The Cherry, But I Did Not Sell My Dignity, VIRUS explores the grey line between boyhood and manhood. What is manhood and how is the modern day right of passage attained? Bearing a firearm for the very first time, VIRUS shot 35 rounds at the same paper target from various distances. Once sold the purpose of the artwork will be complete.
Materials: acrylic, fluorescent wet erase, gold spray paint, on paper target. Bullet holes were created using a 9mm handgun, 12 gauge shotgun, and an AR-15 rifle.
