Action Painting #1

geraldo mercado action painting 1
Created during Esoteric Actions Mixtape Vol 1 at Alt_Break Art Fair 2016 at Fountain Head Gallery. A crucifix kissed onto a canvas using “Wet n Wild” 539A Cherry Frost Lipstick. This action was a riff on my 2016 performance Entitled To My Sweat and my 2014 performance Sunday Best.

Action Painting #1 is an exploration of religious iconography, eroticism, and gender norms.
