This is a collage piece from around 1995. I wanted to see what would happen if I replaced as many elements as possible from an old masterpiece with analogous images from magazines and comics - more or less along the lines of Plutarch's "Ship of Theseus" idea. I picked Reuben's Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus (see below) because of its fleshy, violent imagery and politically charged content.
Once I had the collage done, I realized that the sci-fi superhero (with my face) I'd collaged in on the right was rescuing the daughters (who were now models from a girlie magazine) so I titled the piece Preventing the Rape.
