What is the Milk Fountain?
Milk Fountain is an artistic examination of the female form and human sexuality. The image depicts 8 Japanese women shooting milky fluid onto a ninth woman who lies on the floor. A man can be seen in the forefront of the piece. The imagery in the work is reminiscent of the world famous 1 MAN 1 JAR. As one art critic stated via email: “Milk Fountain is a triumph. I’m amazed by how the sublime beauty of the negative space endangers the devious simplicity of the substructure of the women’s bodies. Although I am not a photographer, I think that the optical suggestions of the facture contextualize the distinctive formal juxtapositions.”
