The Evil Eye

After reading about the Jasper John and Robert Rauschenberg, two gay artists that had been partners for a while. My views about queer relationships become more unambiguous. I got motivated and decided to build an artistic piece that would represent both worlds.

The Evil Eye centers around the notion that certain people have the ability to cause harm or to destroy one's sexual power. In nowadays society, the Evil Eye represents anything perceived to be out of the ordinary, out of the defined values and norms of one’s society.

I believe that our ideas, beliefs and way of seeing life should not be shaped by society. One should always have the right to express his or hers beliefs.
