David Lee Pereira
The Passion Fruit
Acrylic and Resin on Panel, 12"x12"
This body of work references and challenges the institutionalised stigmatisation of sexuality in the name of religion. When I was younger I was always drawn to the ‘forbidden’ and never understood why Eve wasn’t allowed to eat from the tree of knowledge? When I questioned this story to the elders they very confidently explained that ‘she was told not to eat the fruit’, but for me, that wasn’t enough. I learned that the fruit was knowledge, education and sexual liberation and power, onanism and feminine magic.
Eat the fruit.
