Past: Sayre Gomez

CAWD in Gomez World

Catalog essay for Sayre Gomez's World

"Whereas the airbrush once depilated the speedo lines of advertorial flesh for family friendly consumption, it now sprays surfaces with excrement. Advertising’s methods applying our tragedy. Right outside the window, a blue sky’s trumpets soar: a landfill. And with it all the embalming and disenabling of feeling. Golden light on marketing banners themselves. The clown sunsets - in all their cliché effect - is already sorry waste. Commercial and photo techniques on our sadness is irony."
