Known for her BDSM-style “maximum torture” aesthetic, her suggestive placement of clear PVC, and hypersexual subject matter, artist Simone Else is the epitome of Detroit bad bitch. Described as a display of “creative chaos from an intro-per-vert," Else’s latest artistic offering strays from her Eat Da Rich clothing and accessory line to tell the solitary (and masturbatory) tale of a creative. I Can’t Come to Work Today is influenced by the artist's struggle with having to live and produce artistic work in the same space. Works on display range from home goods, clothing, screen printing, painting, and "live" sculptures. 

I Can't Come To Work Today will be displayed at Grey Area on Friday, March 9; Event starts at 7 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m.; 4200 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; facebook.com/greyareadetroit; Event is free.
