My most recent portrait of Michele Bachmann. I call this painting 'Michele Bachmann Nude.'
Yesterday this painting was removed by Ebay following a complaint ( 'MC999 eBay Listing Removed: Violent Materials (502772535)) but Ebay then agreed that the removal was in error and I was welcome to repost it. So here it is, with the addition of laser beams shooting from Michele's nipples. The laser beams are purely ideological in nature and therefore harmless.
I cautioned Ebay that they would probably receive complaints anew once I reposted this piece, so in order to hopefully defuse any sort of misunderstanding regarding the nature of this work allow me to elucidate upon the intended meaning.
This painting features a realistic representation of Michele Bachmann's face contrasted against an unrealistic presentation of her breasts, which, as previously noted, have crosses for nipples and are shooting laser beams. This contrast represents the dichotomy between Mrs. Bachmann's private life as a Christian versus her own public presentation of her faith. The darker shadows on her face could be mistaken for a five o'clock shadow; this is to accentuate her gender-opposite and untraditional role in promoting the gospel. Her eyes which have been much in the news recently are neutralized in my painting; Michele is instead interacting with the world via the twin orbs of her faith. Her bosom represents the old and new testaments; the laser beams are Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. As you can see, the laser beams are just starting to fire; they are in the process of gaining in intensity.
