Adam's Apple

H30" x L36" x W10"
Mixed Media

Of all places, at a home show in Santa Fe, the late Thomas Banyanca, a designated speaker for the Hopi People, stated that there were two major problems with the modern dominant western world: lack of discipline for the children (interpreted as lack of love and direction) and the stigmatization or over emphasis on sex.

Sexuality is prevalent everywhere in the first world. Because of the promotion of sex by the media we can see it not only in the clown-like grease paint and theatrical attire, but also in the realization of the changing and expanding types of transsexuality.

The sculpture is a pun on the present state we are in regarding sex. The apple is made of scavaged apple wood and the various sex parts and the support rods are brass.
