3 Graces – Naughty Then and Now
Bunny Yeager offers us a glimpse into a sultry and ribald society seemingly marooned on South Florida in the 1950’s. Her photographic work underscores a mythical underbelly of beauty and fertility depicted with grace and gray scale. Yeager’s most indelible impressions are of the notorious Bettie Page.
Kitty Brophy is a Charites of the west. Nature is her domain. Her work is like an Erté without the nightgown, a Schiele without the angst. They are auto-anatomical landscapes adrift in tactile abandon, precision and passion. For Kitty, beauty is in the eye the tiger.
Eve Eurydice speaks to the fetish of manners, popular culture and risk assessment. Eve is the greek tycoon of an erotic socio political economic divide. Her ability to smash the moralist and decentralize systems of understanding a fuel that blasted outward broadcasting all cardinal points of view.
As our mythological goddesses of Charites, Yeager, Brophy and Eurydice lure us towards a right of passage. These three graces captivate us with lasting images of the fairer sex. They grab our gaze with their charming distillations of human creativity that are befit the retinue of Aphrodite.
