It makes me think of the whole “Venus” obsession in Renaissance art. You couldn’t paint a naked women who was someone’s mother, wife, daughter, etc.: a real person in other words. Only a fantasy woman, an unreal woman, could be sexualized. Is the modern porn industry really any different? Barbie is my Venus.
I like this yellow version as well. I guess it’s a color theory exercise. If you have a field of yellow/tan pastries, what color do you make the background to make them pop? My answer is, bright yellow!
This is what the donut thing turned into. I couldn’t stand all those yellow donuts. Unappetizing! These donuts make me think of edible emojis.
It needed a lighter background color.
I’m still looking at this one. It could be even more crazy. There may be a second posting in a day or two. Still, it makes me hungry to look at it.
Another take on the teddy bear image. Death (blackness) and childhood (toys). Direct and honest, Although I’ve left out food, sex, and taxes. I’ll get to those subjects soon enough.
And two days later I try again, with a bit more substance added. Which one is better?
