Critics reviews

The art of Six Men Getting Sick is figured as a brain burp. Here ideas build and are forcefully expectorated – emerging from gaping mouths like the foetus-like creature born of Henry Spencer’s floating head at the beginning of Eraserhead. This unconscious eructation of irrational, amorphous materials, sputted from these six heads like sperm from upright penises,1 offers a visual metaphor for the messy imperatives of the (pro)creative process.
