"Honey… Don’t Ruin Your Friendship With Me for Five Minutes" is a painting series that was inspired by the strength of those who came forward during the sexual abuse investigation of movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, and others in the #MeToo movement. Using blind contour drawings (drawings made by not looking at the paper) and incorporating text excerpts from the undercover recording of Weinstein made by Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, artist Cary Okoro explores the destructive force exerted by those who use their position of power to violate others. Through this work, Okoro hopes viewers will ask questions, engage in dialogue and gain insight into the use and abuse of power and privilege.
