$75.00 Winning: Morgan Meis

"Vanishing Points" deals with our sense of dimensional space and how our bodies experience the world. In drawing (as in linear perspective), the vanishing point is the point at which parallel lines receding from an observer seem to converge. In the case of Downey’s body, the vanishing points are the two breasts she removed via top surgery in 2007. In this etching, many bodily forms appear and disappear into an atmosphere of marks, hairs, and erasures.
