Catalogue Note

"I've done all those smokers and people think, 'O.K. that's sexy. That's erotic.' But to me it's just an organic evolution that started with just a mouth which may suggest sex. But it was just a mouth. So that becomes like an extension of my nudes, but to me it's not. It's something completely separate."
