The Deviated Philogyny
Top 33 pieces from Devianart List...
Although, I am a big fan of pinup art and artistic rendering of physical female beauty with erotic themes, I also appreciate platonic displays of female confidence, strength and power. In a world that has developed more-or-less from patriarchy, it is a necessary balance to engage with depictions of women standing on their own and taking care of themselves - ruling their domain. These artworks can inspire, but they can also serve as a fantasy when reality finds itself corrupted and thus bereft of such acts of heroism and independence. This list features thirty-three works gathered from deviantart.com and are displayed in no particular order. Like all my lists in the "touchstoner" section of my website, the selections are made through my personal taste and never reflect "popular" choice which would simply render the lists trite and redundant.
