Description: With titles like Trip Dyck, Rod & Reel, and Handful, artist Donna Ibing’s penis paintings explore the use of humour as a method to investigate the male nude and the problem of the penis. “The actual problem is the penis,” says Ibing regarding her revelations around the work. Painting the male form was an issue, people complained, resulting in its removal, shamefully hidden in the back rooms. Dirty Donna and the Penis Paintings focuses on artist Donna Ibing’s career as she came face to face with censorship, and what it meant to gaze upon men as a female artist.
