Ida Applebroog at KARMA


Liquidity for flesh, each of us a taut water balloon filled with blood, its hard not to see biomorphic anthropocentrically, and the drawing morph to relate their objects to our flesh, see postage think intestines.  Made while the artist was self-committed to an psychiatric institution its harder too not to see the drawings as waypoint thinking between the body and object constructed by a erroneous mind. How could the world not look psychedelic.
