“Space Vixen”, Airbrush, 14″ x 17″ (35.5 x 43 cm), 2000
Space Vixen was originally created as a poster for the Maritime Hall Concert Venue (now defunct?) in San Francisco.
Alternately entitled “Alien Cheesecake”, this damsel of the outer limits dallies on the thin line between “seduction” and “abduction”.
Space Vixen is sentimentalized hysteria incarnate, that is to say that she imbues that netherworld of fairy-folk, witches’ sabbaths, anti-gravity, secret societies and suchlike with a sensual naivete that belies her fetishistic pretensions , and reveals that, even if she is not exactly the “girl next door”, she is at least the “girl next galaxy” . Perhaps if dressed a little more modestly you could bring her home to meet your folks, but then the question is, “What will it be like when she brings you home to meet her parents?” Ahh, light years and alien races intermingling in the vastness of space – these are but trifling complications that never impede true love’s course, and you do love her – don’t you?
