Lumps and Stumps Title image Lumps and Stumps image  
Meticulously executed with the precision and tone of an engraving, this black and white line drawing shows a hideous and malignant tree of flesh - the branches sagging beneath a crop of gaunt and flaccid breasts. The cavernous and spreading bole of the tree gapes and yawns with openings, and the lump-ridden bark of thick skin is warty with lidless eyes and truncated, phallic stumps. The artwork has a certain nightmare beauty, and a simultaneous and morbid sense of irreversible decay and infectious, saprophytic growth.
