Bellissima. How the fashion world can set an ideal of a woman that has the angular shape of a man I could never fathom. I'm in complete agreement with your celebration of the richness and generosity of feminine beauty with this painting. The fact that she steps out from a background of mundane newsprint (representing a power that conditions how we should think) and renders her nudity instead with a self-confidence that challenges the observer's acceptance of the norm. Instead her sensual warmth and normality defies our readiness to accept as true what we read as an ideal in the newspapers or the images we see on television.
Maybe in the end the role of the artist is always political?

Thanks JP. I believe the answer is Yes, the role of the artist is always political. The ideal of a woman, promoted by fashion (and others, even men's ones, like Playboy, etc) magazines means nothing to me on desire wise. I can flip tens of magazines pages and see nothing on those women. All that studio lighten pictures breaks any attempt of creating life. This is the representation of all women who I've been intimate with, is how I remember of a moment of intimacy with women. This is what arouses me, so, the ideal of a woman to me.
