"THE GOPIS"

 

 

Charcoal Drawing 4' by 9' FRAMED, 1995. 
The reimagining of the seduction and sex play by Lord Krishna (considered God by Hindus) and the Gopis (shepherd women). The the scene as an extreme realm of sadistic gay sexual bacchanalia.  The Gopis are now men raped in religious ecstasy – dressed in the garb and dreamscape of sadism and masochism.   The Dark Lord – faceless -- is now master of these men – these Gopis – who serve him in in the ecstasy of their rapes.
