These images are intended to be viewed together as a series and should be considered as such. As my artists statement indicates this series concerns the depiction of the body in wet-drapery and the modern action of shaving.
In Western society women are expected to shave their skin in order to be desirable to the opposite sex. Western men prefer a woman with freshly shaved legs, armpits, and a groomed vagina. While this may seem shocking in Eastern culture it is a common grooming practice in the West. Beauty salons offer the Brazilian bikini wax to remove all hair from a woman’s private area while drug stores sell shaving cream, razors, and hair removal cream. However, I have always found something edgy and dark in shaving the most intimate parts of your skin in order to be sexually desirable.
