Each of the pieces in Untitled (Can Sculpture) begins with a soda can with a photocopy of a young man’s face pasted over the label. The image is taken from a 70s naturist magazine and was chosen because the boy’s strong classical features exemplify archetypical ideals of beauty and youth. In this work, a red light bulb is embedded inside a torn can to denote sexual attraction, its seedy glow visible through the peep hole opening of another. Desire and fixation are amplified through a small magnifying lens which focuses on the bulb’s phallic screw-grooved base.
