Hands down, Lola Frost (fb, twitter, tumblr, instagram) has been the biggest nurturer of my growth both as a human and an artist. Helping me dig into my own skin to be more comfortable and brave with my expression. [see most of our work together here]
Nudity is a big part of this, being such a controversial topic. It’s hard to believe that 60 years ago there were patrol officers at the beach making sure women didn’t have too much upper thigh showing. Today, everywhere we look there is sex selling something. And if it’s not selling something, it’s being flaunted by brave vixens and hermanos pushing the boundaries. I think for most of us, we’re trying to understand what the difference between sexuality, expression, intimacy, and allure is. As we become accustomed to seeing nudity, we start to wonder what excites us; we begin to explore our own definitions.
To steal the time tested axiom: it’s not quantity, it’s quality.
