Much of my ART is created spontaneously
and in the case of NAOMI IN REPOSE, 2017,
I did not create this female nude to be
NAOMI CAMPBELL, yet she was undeniably NAOMI!
Truth expressed, female nudes are my fave subject
and I have to force myself to create other subjects
that I am inspired by. I could actually create only
female nudes, solo and in composition. Back to NAOMI,
her modern legendary career continues to EVOLVE
and she is without doubt, the most profound presence
from that SUPERMODEL ERA that has morphed into
a new type of SUPERMODEL. Prior to NAOMI and THE TRINITY,
of course there were COUNTLESS SUPERMODELS, however,
the word SUPERMODEL was not yet in the mix.
Enter GIANNI VERSACE and STEVEN MEISEL who
ignited the SUPERMODEL ERA, their salaries would
SKYROCKET to OVER THE TOP amounts that ultimately,
came to an end. SUPERMODELS became more important
than THE FASHION DESIGNERS. Back to NAOMI IN REPOSE,
I love how her FACE is not seen yet THE BODY is NAOMI,
that ICONIC BODY. Those LEGS, that HIGH BUTT, that CATWALK!
