“The Point of Pain”
Pain is something we all inevitably experience throughout life, whether it be physical or emotional. What stands out to me the most about pain, however, is that there are those who “combine pleasure with pain.” Although pleasure and pain are separate, there are many who view them as one. This quick sketch demonstrates how pleasure and pain can be combined as one mass of touch, but at the same time have their own separate feelings.
Kissing is one of the most ultimate forms of intimacy, and in previous times has been considered to be a way to “fuse two souls.” I created this illustration to demonstrate how kissing creates a passionate intimacy as the two are self-absorbed with one another, and their beings begin to melt away into the universe as one soul.
