Robbing the Rubenesque2013
Neon Classical ( Nudes In Undies) I would see Rubenesque women as being similiar to the average Irish woman- curves n' all with flesh pink n' pale all over. When I went looking for undies in the most common department store in the country ( the clue's in the canvas!) I couldn't help but feel like a nun in a sex shop. Even the shops mannequins seemed out of place compared to all the women that moved around them. The colours, design cuts, patterns and suggestive logos all seemed a bit too insulting and insane for me not to pick up on and work with. So I felt it was a good opportunity to get REAL (Rubenesque) women on board to model this selection of 'ladies' underwear....as you can see, these undies were never designed with our GLORIOUS, MAGNIFICENT, WONDROUS, CREATIVE and GENUINE ever-changing forms in mind!
