Taking its title from the eponymous Hieronymous Bosch painting, Garden of Earthly Delights featured five new paintings and twenty drawings describing the erotic underwater realm of Raqib’s imagination; Oriental, psychedelic, surreal, pornographic, and decorative, the works featured efflorescent genitalia put to work by all manner of hybrid creature.
