UNIVERSAL ASYLUM

Founding Artwork

Universal Asylum does not consider the human species as the centre of &/or of any more importance than anything else in the universe.


Proceeds raised via founding artworks:

Once transferred to Not For Profit, Charity status Universal Asylum intends to retain the minimum commission on all artworks to maintain customers eligibility for charitable tax purposes in supporting the broader operations of the company with proceeds falling outside of this being paid directly to the artist responsible for their work. 

Unfortunately until Universal Asylum obtains "Not For Profit, Charitable" status sales &/or donations will not be eligible for charitable tax benefits.

Nevertheless, sales made prior to Not For Profit, Charity status being secured will be divided in a similar manner with Universal Asylum retaining a 51% commission on founding artworks, investing proceeds towards general costs associated with the initial establishment of Universal Asylums & setting up to achieve its primary objectives.

Once the early stages of establishment are underway proceeds raised are intended to support the broader operations of the Universal Asylum & it's many complex roles associated with saving ourselves & everything else in this magical world, from ourselves & one another.

Lust

Lust

As featured on SA Healths Australian National TV Government Anti Smoking Campaign July 2023

 

Sculpture of a dude with his brain falling out his head whilst pulling his cock.. "Lust" is ultimately inspired by compromising your values for a relationship, or the fact that "love" turns people into fucken retards, etc. I have struggled with the title of this & for a while changed it to the more politically correct version of "True Love" which is equally insane. However, the sculpture Lust was ogiginally inspired by the trauma of ignoring countless red flags for the sake of sticking my cock in the psychopath Rosie Bourn who destroyed everything I loved at my most vulnerable because I rejected the fuggly cunt!

 

Medium: Hebel Stone

Teqnique: Carved.

Artist: Mark Parker

Collection(s): Woolshed #02

Year: 2016

Production Footage exists: No

 

Fame & Fortune.

"Lust" features along side his raunchy "Step-Sister" statue "Ego - Self Endulgence" in the background of theGovernment of South Australia's SA Health Anti-Tobacco YouTube production Marks Story wihch can also be found with further context at Besmokefree.com.au.  Although, inconsitenceices with dates appear to exist I was informed the production had been released on the 01st September 2022.

 

Although completely seperate to Univeral Asylum I took part in the initiative run by Drug & Alcohol Services South Australia as a member of their Community Partnership Program. Although I had hoped they would shot me from further back benith my Social Work degree & with greater variety of art aranged as not to be cluttered in my relatively cramped living space the film crew wanted to shot me in a different postion on the couch with the window in the backgroud. Although they had diffenrt tasts in artwork we came to a compromise as I felt "Lust" & "Ego - Self Endulgence" provided the most appropriate balance of being artworks of a high enough quality to refelt my skills as an Artist & complexities of my personality within this bizarre phenominon we call life. Plus I think the the raw finish of "Lust" worked well in providing subtle yet intresting background shapes whilst "Ego Self-Endulgence" balanced out the red in my magical mushroom  t-shit in a complimentry fashion!
