Erotica // Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Tara Krebs takes iconic figures from myth, history and literature and re-imagines them in a bold, sexy pinup style in her "Cheesecake Theology" series. By imposing a distinctly American aesthetic onto the bodies of various gods, deities and forebears of various international cultures, she raises provocative questions about how women are portrayed by different countries and for differnt purposes. Krebs is a Canadian artist and resides in Ontario. She attributes her artistic output from having been hidden away from the cold Canadian winter for most of her childhood.
