Lilly McElroy: “I throw myself at men” and way more.

Lilly McElroy

You’ve probably seen Lilly McElroy around the web for her photo series featuring her throwing herself at men (literally). I think that series is too much fun. I love artists that know how to have a laugh. Sometimes fine art can be so sullen. Dana Schutz is funny too.

Anyway, I loved Art Moco’s recent post about her.

I explored her site and found that she has a fantastic body of work other than the aforementioned series. I love the photos of her sleeping in odd places like libraries, train platforms, laundromats, and simply throwing herself in the air. Her work is a must see.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I just got your package. OMG.

    You are a genius. And although my other dog is so jealous, I think it’s PERFECT.

    Thank you! More formal letter to come… 😉
