This piece was years in the making, layering Lorena Bobbitt’s face over and over again on-top of it self, until it became a Human mask, both beautiful and disturbing, deeply insightful and yet forever a barrier. The reality of the circumstances involved deepen and broaden the content.
John Wayne Bobbitt and Lorena Bobbitt were an American couple married on June 18, 1989 whose relationship made world-wide headlines in 1993 when, after years of being allegedly raped (he was acquitted on the rape charge), beaten, and sodomized by her husband, Lorena cut off his penis with a knife while he was asleep in bed. The penis was subsequently surgically reattached. Years after the incident, John was convicted of beating two other women and of theft.
