Paul Brainard’s Healthy Libido

Paul Brainard’s got a healthy libido, there’s no doubting that.   He mixes it up with junk food, memento mori, geometric abstraction and political anger to create work that seduces and repels.  Dredging into the murky area of what the French psychologist Jacques Lacan called “desire;” defined as: what you want after you’ve got everything you need.  Cue the Rolling Stones, I can’t get no (guitar riff) satisfaction.  Brainard is bad mofo with a pencil, after the jump there’s some tasty drawings.  You can see Paul’s work in SF at Guerrero Gallery, and in NYC at Allegra LaViola for the upcoming group show Pornucopia, which is running from Feb 4th to March 11th.
