The (UK) Sunday Times reports:
Nude portraits of the Prime Minister’s daughter are creating a stir in the art world.
Stephanie Key, 20, studies at the prestigious Paris College of Art in France.
Her photographs, in which she poses naked with food positioned in strategic places, are being used to promote this year’s Paris Design Week.
One of the images shows Ms Key naked with sushi on her breasts and an octopus over her groin.
In another she poses with burger buns covering her breasts.
Art experts have called the work “visually arresting”.
They’re not nude portraits of course, but that sounds more sensational. They’re pretty typical modern art. The story has been picked up by TVNZ and I guess will be on both channels tonight and all the newspapers tomorrow.
What would dad think? PM’s daughter poses nude
I’m sure he is incredibly proud of her as a talented young woman. The fact her father is PM shouldn’t interfere with her work at an art school in Paris. It is the Paris College of Art that choose to use her art to promote Paris Design Week, which suggests she is doing very well there.
I can understand the public interest, but this isn’t an issue where people should be asking the PM for comment. His only role here is as a father, not as PM.
This is the other image. Again it is a long long way from being “nude” (not that there would be any problems if it was anyway). You see more revealing photos on Facebook all the time.
Not that I am an artist, but the McDonalds one appeals to me much more. The buns and fries are cheekily done, and the red and yellow is visually appealing – with the red wig matching in well.
The sushi one is pretty cool, but the thought of an octopus on the skin just isn’t for me!
If you choose to comment, be aware I will delete anything I consider inappropriate or even borderline.
