The Model's Revenge I-III

The Model

Alexis Hunter. The Model's Revenge I-III, 1974.

Description:
In this triptych, the artist plays the role of the passive nude who becomes an active threat as she points a handgun toward the voyeur from between her breasts, before covering her pudenda with the weapon and gaining further association with Freudian ‘Penis Envy’. She finally rests it on a bed, wherein connotations of lust and vengeance underscore the very sexual overtones the model tries to defy.
