The Golem: Chapter VII

I was taken away by the detail in this Intaglio and chine piece. The artist Matt Rebholz successfully portrays a disgusting bathroom and the feeling of sickness. The setting is in a very dirty men’s bathroom with small hexagonal tile floor. There are words, graffiti, photos, dark puddles, bugs and a small picture of a guy barfing on the wall. The light is on in the bathroom above the sink and the door is cracked open. There is a guy whom you can barely see walking by the door that looks like a zombie. The piece made me think how much waste we produce and how disgusting we can make our enviorment.
