I’m not very good at art. Take a piece of computer paper that somebody sneezed on, stick it next to a Rembrandt and I can’t tell the difference. Say the word “Dalí” and my mind goes to Dolly Parton’s 70-year-old knockers way before landing on the Spanish surrealist painter. Despite my shortcomings, however, I am not totally useless in the art department for I know that this — this, is art.
New York City-based painter Alexandra Rubinstein has taken it upon herself to try and change the perception of sexuality to be one that’s more inclusive of women and less male-centric. The way she went about this? Painting a ton of pictures of some of the world’s most famous men mucking barn in a collection she calls “A Dream Come True.”
From Alexandra Rubinstein:
These paintings reflect on the lack of heterosexual female perspective in representation of sexuality in mainstream media and pornography, which reflect as well as shape the way we interact in real life. More literally, they depict male heart throbs eating pussy (taking it back, Trump!) from the women’s point of view. Cunnilingus is censored in mainstream media, rated NC-17 in film, and is under-represented in pornography (compared to the slew of other ‘categories’), which reiterates to the viewer that sex is about men and their pleasure. It’s not! Aside from intent to saturate the market, the series is largely inspired by the lack of female-targeted pornography available on the internet or print. Don’t ask me how I know. The title of each painting references the work of the male eating pussy, and gives the visual more narrative (we like a story!), while the point of view focuses on and eroticizes the male to better target its female audience.
Rubinstein can paint, too. Here are some of the portraits, censored because my boss Dorno wouldn’t let me post beav to the site. I was just trying to liven up people’s Mondays, dude.
Smart of Rubinstein to choose Drake and Gosling to include in this collection, as they’re the two celebrities I’d peg to be the biggest fans of ‘lingus. Makes this whole collection that much more realistic… as if the insane attention to detail wasn’t enough. Seriously, look at John Hamm’s face. It’s like it’s really him staring back up at me from beneath the vagina that I have in this scenario. Astounding.
