The Collaboration of Sexy
New Works by Martha A. Wade and Reisha

Poking fun at sexy with 5×8 feet collaborative paintings on canvas by two dynamic artists, and self-proclaimed “sexy” women.  In this new body of work, Reisha and Martha push “sexy” beyond traditional stereotypes to encompass a new meaning – powerful, passionate, emotional, and intelligent.  The art is a vivid journey through power and beauty that represents a visual dictation of their collaborative sense of the world today – and the potential for tomorrow.

An irreverent spin on sexuality, exploitation, and the right to be more than what meets the eye.  The works stems from the artists’ desire to contrast societal beauty standards and sexuality with a familiar character viewed by many as comical and even intimidating.
