UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The reality of women’s underwear seems to be one big dirty secret. The American public is exposed to a single type of women’s underwear, the sexy and the cute. These garments are stringy, lacy, silky and well hated by the vagina. The truth is, many women’s underwear is roomy, made of cotton, and filled with years of period stains. The “underwear” drawing series attempts to take these daily garments out of hiding and describe them as sacred in its golden frames and beautiful in the luscious detailing.
