Wicked Milk is a painting that explores the contrast between what we need and what we want in life. Gorman Bentley uses a palette of black, white, gold and red to create a dynamic composition of shapes and lines. The black and white represent the basic necessities of survival, such as food, water and shelter. The red and gold represents the desires and temptations that lure us away from our true needs, such as money, power and pleasure. The painting shows a splash of off milk in the center, symbolizing the corruption of our natural instincts by our wicked wants. The painting invites the viewer to reflect on their own choices and priorities in life, and to question whether they are satisfying their needs or their wants.
