origin of love

origin of love is a series of 13 paintings that are a frame-by-frame recreation of a pornographic gif sourced from tumblr. it was first included in Tasty Zine's inaugural issue in 2013. somewhat ironically, while the original paintings and the original gif are available to this day on tumblr, a video of the paintings on display at Tasty's launch was removed for TOS violation.

a sequence of the paintings were also included in Outlet's NSFW: Male Nudes by Female Painters exhibition in 2016.
