Goodbye Innocence, Hello Latex

Jasper Goodall’s solo gallery show Poster Girl is a commentary on the fine line between fetishism, fantasy and reality, expressed through shiny latex, dripping goo and acrylic body-masking cutouts.  The titles of his prints — Bad Bambi, Pink Polish, Crude Oil, Medusa, Tigress and Evil Mickey — entice our curiosity and give us an inkling of what is about to come.

Poster Girl is a series of photographs where a model holds up one of Goodall’s body illustrations, making the art both photography and illustration, reality and fantasy.  He plays with the idea of disguise, masking and dressing up.  It’s also about taking a symbol of innocence — Bambi for example — and sexualizing it, creating a guilty-pleasure fantasy.  On Halloween, these lines are enthusiastically crossed by the multitudes of women sporting costumes of the innocent or honorable Nurse, Nun, Schoolgirl or Police woman gone sexy-bad.  Goodall’s illustrations suggest that “loss of innocence” is a theme with which society may publicly denounce but is secretly intrigued.

This series could be both a stance for feminism or exploitation, depending on your view of Goodall’s work, which is loaded with symbolism, complicated themes and societal nuances.  Poster Girl is sexy, sassy and fun wrapped up with a big naughty bow.  Don’t just take my word for it, explore for yourself.

    The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.
