<i>American Martyr</i>

American Martyr


American Pyrographs

American Martyr simultaneously draws upon traditional Renaissance depictions of the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian and Sherer's recollections of his youth: "I remember several times when my friends and I tied guys to trees and shot them with rubber suction-tipped arrows...we always chose the most beautiful guys for this faux martyrdom."
