    I think Vincent’s art is sickening.

    Some of it was interesting, thought provoking and some of it was sickening.

    For the nudity? I am no prude. No issues with nudity, but I have zero idea what the artist was trying to convey in some of those images.

    I, personally, could have done without the image of the 3 strung up dead pigs. Revolting.

    What message came from that or was meant to be taken from it is beyond me.

    If you told me the artist was against animal cruelty/consumption, the image might make more sense and thus once can realize it’s reason for being created.

    As an animal lover/vegetarian/vegan, it was a disconcerting reminder of the constant suffering and death of our fellow creatures.

      I too would hope that the messages that you suggested were what was intended. Unfortunately, there is a school of thought that maintains, when you say “What message came from that or was meant to be taken from it is beyond me,” that question and comment are themselves the purpose of art whether you get it or not. Whether there is something specific to get or not. I think that’s what at play here. Looking at the rest of this person’s work, I would say the odds are against his being concerned about the source of bacon and pork chops.
