Blood Works: The Sanguineous Art Of Robert Sherer, Robert Sherer

KSU Press Legacy Project

Robert Sherer is an internationally recognized gay American artist whose work explores race, gender, sexuality, and Southern identity, intertwined with beautiful and provocative botanical and anatomical illustration.

The second part of this essay attempts to construct the theoretical parameters for the expansion of the definition of the ...
