Tracey Emin—-Luv her!!!!
Sarah Lucas—- I understand her, and my work relates very much to hers.
This doll represents the influence of Playboy on the American culture and force expectations of what beauty should be.
Did you know the original Playboy bunny outfits were all sized D-cup, girls had to stuff their bras to create cleavage where they could store their tips, they were also force to wear nude nylons under their black nylons so all the girls had the same skin tone. The molded idea that the perfect woman should be a blonde, blue eyes, size D-cup, and a tiny waist is unreal.
The reality of beauty comes in many colors, sizes, and comes from within. When will the American culture learn to relect moral values, instead of vanity to the youth??
One of my favorite emerging artists is Kaari Upson. I discovered her work at the Rubell in Miami and it put me in an awwww, ooooh moment. Absolutely love love love her work!!!
