Maisey Tied & Spanked (5-15-14) SOLD

"Maisey," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Looks like someone's been called to the office!  Obviously this is a variation on Mona's chair piece from a little while ago, that seemed seemed worthy of further exploration.

  1. What is fascinating about this drawing and the Mona piece is how much the style of the chair dictates how each girl is tied into it, as it were. The chair Mona is in is open, airy and one might even say billowy, and her pose could be described using those words as well. Maisey's office chair is compact and efficient, words that easily describe how she is bound into her chair.

    I say "into" instead of the usual "to" since the set up with the girls facing/sitting in the chairs backwards creates situations where, at least to me, they are not so much tied "to" the chairs, but more intricately (and intimately) tied "into" the chairs. Both drawings become almost like pieces of sculpture where the figures of the girls and the chairs become really nicely "melded" into a whole that is more than just a girl and a chair with some rope. Very cool take on a standard bondage trope, and hopefully a thread that will be continued here!
