1992 Mixed media by Susan Silas, from the Exquisite Corpse Series. The pot and saucer are for a Hedera Ivy plant that would have adorned the original piece in the exhibit. The classical font or text is painted in a light purple tone ink on wood. ""There once was a man named Dave Who kept a dead whore in a cave She was covered with shit And had only one tit But think of the money he saved"". Susan Silas (American, b. 1953)
If you’ve played Mad Libs word games, you might already be familiar with the general concept of stringing together random words or phrases to arrive at an amusing composite sentence or story. Similarly, the Exquisite Corpse collaborative drawing approach creates absurd artwork on a single sheet of paper.


Very good.
