I wanted to create a series embodying the Madonna-Whore complex, melding the Freudian dichotomy.
In this series, I wanted to depict the women as both the Madonna and the Whore. With Madonna-like divineness with submissive body language and expression, evoking religious iconography of the Virgin Mary.
And while emulating the purity of traditional modesty, they simultaneously embody the Whore - embracing their bodies and by extension their sexuality. Not modestly covered up, but instead showing bare skin embodying the sexual promiscuity the Whore represents.
This melds the Madonna and Whore in one - a tainted beauty.
While oil and water seem two polar opposites - they are not completely unmatched. When oil overlaps water it creates a beautiful rainbow effect.
The idea of tainted attractiveness with these two traits of women is represented as beautiful in this series. The overlap of Madonna and whore is where a realistic woman lies - A modern woman.
