Latex art that’s bold and beautiful! As a fetishist, I scour the internet for all kinds of lovely jewels and this pretty lady, Michelle Mildenhall is a UK artist with a very unique “pop art style,” unique because it’s created using latex.
Some folks would label her work as provocative, for me I see it as progressive, utilizing a substance so coveted for BDSM fashions and pervery it was just a matter of time to see it used to create visual delights to be hung on any connoisseur’s walls.
With her work reminiscent of the late Andy Warhol, it’s bold, blunt and distinctive, casually presenting themes that explore BDSM and what would be construed as deviant sexuality by the mainstream masses. Casual presentations that include depictions of a devious smiling Queen Elizabeth and a smug “Tsarina” Valdimir Putin looking like they are ready for action. There’s even the Iron Lady herself Margaret Thatcher looking oh so fetching, and number of other celebrities you’ll be sure to recognize.
Consensual Kink is her latest exhibition which runs two weeks from the end of September at the Lilford Gallery in the heart of Folkestone’s artist quarter at Georges House, 8 The Old High Street, Folkestone CT20 1RL. Gallery opening hours are 10am-5pm.
