Brigette, 2019

‘Brigette’ is the latest of my collages featuring Playboy models and imagery. This particular collage features advertisements and models from several Playboy magazines dated 1969 – 1988.

I enjoy working with the ‘men’s entertainment’ magazines because it allows me the opportunity to re-contextualize the models in environments that inspire freedom. I enjoy literally excising them from the context of the magazine, placing them in new color schemes, landscapes, and company that awakens the strength of each model in her photograph. Themes I explore are sexual expression and repression, queerness, Americana, consumerism, and vices.
