ABOUT: Purity is one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, as opposed to the Seven Deadly Sins. I decided to take a twist on the virtue where nudity (a book on nudes) is being censored (tossed in the trash). Figure art has long struggled with puritan values and faced censorship. I personally experience this with a social media site that limits what kind of figure art can be posted. Violence is accepted, yet the unclothed body is not permitted. This is a subject very close to me. I recognize social norms, yet see how prudish values dominate conduct.
