DEE’S latest erotic collage and mixed media series “Ma Belle Salope Chinoise” of 19 paintings incorporates collage, sequins, watercolor, gouache, pen and ink, fabric glitter, color pencil and Chinese symbolisms to depict the sensuousness of the Asian woman.
Chinese New Year is the longest and most important auspicious festivity in the Lunar Calendar for the Chinese. This inspired Dee to cultivate this compelling self portrait series using traditional Chinese Red Paper envelopes, red and gold color paper cuts, Chinese coins, koi fish, her Chinese name stamp, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese Ming vase plate designs, and sequins found on “Cheongsam” Chinese silk robes as part of her collage with mixed media. Beautiful, exotic and seductive…her women reveal a sophisticated rapture of subtle sexuality and they all possess mysterious and erotic expressions of beauty, joy and sensuous pleasure. The series displays women wearing uniquely decorated Chinese inspired costumes and provides a deeper inner perspective of the artist.
“Red is the predominant color used in New Year celebrations. Red is the emblem of joy, and this color also symbolizes virtue, truth and sincerity. Therefore, red is an auspicious color and I have used Red in my paintings to denote amorous feelings with Ming blue in the background for contrast, blending textures, colors and design to create “Ma Belle Salope Chinoise”.
