Wasco chalk on paper, framed
32,5 × 39 cm
Unique drawing, in a series of 5
Gijs Milius made a special set of wasco chalk drawings for artlead. The series is a play on the joke that the internet was invented to spread photographs of breasts and kittens. Titled after a Dutch slang word for breasts, each drawing shows one pair of female breasts. In true Milius tradition, the drawings are attractive in their use of colour and formal visual language while at the same time radiating a certain unease. The breasts in this series are large – maybe too large; they are veiny and uneven; they look like they are about to burst. Looking at these drawing might make you uncomfortable, but you can’t look away.
