Basketball and Sex

Jeremy Lin is the the cinderella story of the NBA this season. He was a no-one who came out of Harvard and was on the bench for the New York Knicks when he was chosen to come on the court where he went on an electric run to rejuvenate the team. I had made a couple of monotypes dedicated to him but both were unsuccessful, poorly formulated attempts. Here I took one of these flat prints and I’ve begun the process of reforming a composition with a slightly sexualized nude, utilizing bits and pieces of the underlying marks and forms. It is only fitting, I think, to honor this injured basketball player, who has had surgery on his leg and will be out the rest of the season. Baseball and sex are the usual analogies, but I’m throwing up a three pointer and lets see if it misses. This is a work in progress.
