NANCY PEACH, “Unspoken Bond”, 2008, Oil on canvas, 96″ x 96″, Tom of Finland Foundation Permanent Collection
In 2008, I became interested in the art of Japanese erotic bondage called Shibari, which came into use in the west in the 1990s to describe the bondage art Kinbaku.
Kinbaku means tight binding, using simple yet visually intricate patterns. Japanese bondage is very much about the way the ropes are applied and the pleasure is more in the journey than the destination.
The patterns that are created in this particular style of rope bondage by the Nawashi (rope master) are fascinating to me and I continue to be intrigued with the beauty.
I am continually asked why I paint bondage? I always have to say that my thirst has been satisfied by the caliber of people I am associated with in this genre and I am extremely inspired by the art of Japanese bondage.
I express joy, love, honor, beauty, bold freedom and most of all respect. I want to allow people to express themselves through my art.
In 2009, Tom of Finland Foundation awarded Nancy Peach for Unspoken Bond in our Emerging Erotic Artist Contest.
