Nude with Foo Foo (2)

“Nude with Foo Foo” Oil 30 x 40 by Tom Kelly 2013

A Foo Foo is a pacifier or at least that is what I called it when my children used them. It is pacifying because it replicates the sucking satisfaction of a baby on its mother's breast. The binocular visual effect is enhanced by the dual nature of women as a sexual object as well as a nurturer. Also represents my current position in life trying to nurture the next generation to take over.... Or maybe I just want grandchildren.
