I still believe in the male gaze. Seems like everyone has given up on that.
Different ideas. I’d like to dress up as each of my friends and take their portrait, a portrait of me, an homage. Maybe I’ll do it but I wonder if it’s worth it.
The underwear were merely a symbol for the body. The location of the most disgusting form of abjection. I chose the underwear for the location. I buy used underwear. Everyone says they don’t do it. I mean, I check the crotch and make sure it’s not stained, and only if they are like really cool or interesting. And of course I wash them before I wear them. A friend lost my favorite pair of crotch-less panties while performing in the Miss L.E.S. Pageant. Can’t blame her for that. I got them from a Saver’s in Springfield. Now used crotch- less panties no worries. They were low-cut, black lace, from the 70s."-K8 Hardy

Sascha Braunig combines vibrant color and an hypnotic style in works that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the image. In dream-like scenes where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig's female subjects emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power.

The farm in which the Log Cabin pattern is displayed is the Eden Shale Research Farm for the University of Kentucky. This pattern was chosen by Mrs. Bessie Hawkins, widow of O.D. Hawkins, the first farm manager and Barbara Wyles, wife of Joe Wyles, second farm manager.

Essie Merck once lived on the property where this block is displayed. For generations, this site was the original Six Mile Community Post Office and farm of the Merck family. The current owner of the property, Cindy Blair, chose the pattern to honor Essie, but changed the original colors. The pattern reminds her of the old Granny Square afghans her great-grandmother, Minnie Gokey, crocheted in colorful florals with a black background.
