Porno Portraits

One of the themes that I am most interested in is female archetypes. The Temptress, the Mother, the Crone, the Virgin, etc...
I started these little portraits of women from pornography as a study of these roles and expectations, using images and mixed media (aka butterflies and glitter!) with the paintings to add a tongue-in-cheek reference to a "girlie" aesthetic.
The idea is not to glorify the porn, but rather to find the mother (thus all the boobies), the innocent teenaged girl, archetypes of the women within the sex object. (i.e. it's a feminist comment, so haters: don't bug me)

These are the first, more to come!
