Love At First Slime is a body of work that strives to marry the elegant and obscene. Once upon a time, a girl could be advised to “enter a man’s heart through his stomach,” a turn of phrase that conjures images of an alien femme who burrows merrily between the organs of her host-or perhaps bakes him a pie. Love is strange. Love is messy. Love comes from above of below or from the side. Love is our most noble emotion, and we express our love in a myriad of ways we’d rather not describe out loud. This collection celebrates the beautiful beast that is the body, ruled and tormented by her head, her heart, her stomach, and her loins.
