My Egyptian series is an addition to my ‘j’accuse’ painting ‘The Revelation of Bettie Page (2018)’. My New Year’s resolution for this year: I dare all algorithms of social media scanning the internet for nipples like the Matrix’s sentinels for Neo. Egyptians were not shy to stand up for their sexuality not ending up in porn and smut. We must stop the display of pink uzis for children on the internet and choose nipples in stead. My Bastet goddess therefor shows a nice pink one. The system will track it soon enough but you as spectator can join John Lennon in singing: “I’m not the only one”. Happy 2019 to everybody!
Alright, just some explanation on the model. It is my regular model whose name I cannot tell here because she poses and has a job on the side that does not allow her to become publically known as a nude model. I can say that her genes come from India and her skin hues are the most beautiful I have ever seen. In this drawing they came quite in style and were what I needed in order to match the body colors with the Egypt scenery in the back.
