David Wojnarowicz’s “Untitled (Face in Dirt),” from 1991, shows the artist sinking into the earth (or is he rising, Lazarus-like, from it?) in Death Valley. 
We love chocolate, pizza, vodka, and basically everything that kills our bodies but tastes delicious! Yesterday though, Ernest accepted the challenge of the Whole30 diet, and we thought this self-portrait of David Wojnarowicz rising Lazarus-like from the dirt fit the moment. The program is 30-days without processed food to reduce acid reflux, inflammation, clear up your skin, and revitalize energy stores. Facing challenges are why we are drawn to Wojnarowicz’s prophetic images. Condemned by conservatives, he challenged Christians to do better. That’s why his museum retrospective “History Keeps Me Awake” is our art of the week.
