The bizarre extreme of art - masturbatory drawings on paper

London, Jan 11 (ANI): The spectrum of art has surely widened to bizarre extremes, with an artist creating a new exhibition of drawings by masturbating over paper.

Jordan McKenzie has made 55 images by ejaculating over canvas and sprinkling carbon over the results to immortalize them.

The results of his wacky creativity are due to be displayed at the Centre for Recent Drawing in Highbury, north London, for a month.

However, McKenzies masturbatory art has caused quite a stir in England, with both conformist and radical sections of the society panning the 40-year-old artist.

All we can do is pray for the artist. The extraordinary thing is that someone actually thought it was art and put it on at his gallery. We are clearly dealing with a very mixed-up person, The Sun quoted Father Kit Cunningham, of St Etheldredas Church in Clerkenwell, as saying.

Art lover and artist David Gleeson said: Tracy Emin showed her knickers but this is a different thing entirely. I am in favour of almost any form of expression but I do baulk at ejaculating over a piece of paper. Oh please!

Excuse the pun, but it sounds like hes taking the p***, he added.

Jordan, who intends to create three drawings a week, said that he doesnt want people to judge his works out of hand.

This is only the first batch of them. It is a diary of my ejaculations they are heartfelt and delicate. I hope people will come and see them - not judge them out of hand, Jordan said. (ANI)
