The bustier can be found more in the realm of fetishism, than in mainstream fashion. I have been fascinated by the history, structure, materials and traditions of the corset and its place in our contemporary society today. A generation ago, women were symbolically burning their bras to regain power, while a generation later many are embracing undergarments for very much the same reasons. Working on a series of images often allows the artist to focus on his materials and to explore other areas of the processes of image-making. We often see great artists exploring the same images throughout their lives, never seemingly satisfied and looking for a better solution or idea.
