Sex makes me giggle. All those poopy places & stuff. Boobs & tits. Cocks & dicks. How can you not guffaw? Sex also gives me nightmares. Gooey ones. I painted this one when I was on welfare living with Louis Rastelli across from Parc du Portugal next door to Leonard Cohen’s old place. Louis wrote about that period in a book called “A Fine Ending,” published in 2007. He now works for Archive Montreal, Distroboto, & Expozine. I had all the time in the world & a hungry belly there so I ate lotsa rice & beans & read lotsa art books. I decided I wanted to become a serious artist & push paint around for a change instead of inks. This was one of the results. The following year I would receive my first Canada Council Grant to produce the dirtiest thing I ever made, “Rick Trembles’ Goopy Spasms Live Cartoon Show.” (To see image full-sized, click on it to open in a new window & use the magnify function).
