Baring their teeth

June 2, 2013

I had a thought. Not a very important one. But still… Most visual art is voyeuristic. If not sexual in interest it is at least snooping. There are times when the subjects of the art are looking at the artist. Looking into the camera. But more often the artist is trying to catch people in some act that reveals. Reveals something about human nature, relationships.

A lot of pornography is based on this same voyeurism. But if you have looked around you also see the subjects of porn almost assaulting the viewer. It is aggressive. Baring their teeth.
