Dragon-Kept Damsels

image by Veronica V. Jones

Bi Tai Wei

A clear distinction between the objectification of the female form and true artwork is the interaction of the figure with her environment. Has she meekly succumb to an unrelenting landscape, or is she bravely persevering in the face of adversity? Bi Tai Wei explores these possibilities and many more, taking clues from mythology, speculative fiction, and his own fertile imagination.

With pale, slender bodies adorned with slim straps and tattered ribbons, Mr. Bi’s mermaids, fairies and mortal women are always the focus, but are fully formed individuals who are integral to their surroundings. While some females languidly await their fate, others aggressively pursue their mysterious adventures.

Serving as constant companions to these aloof ladies company are a swarm of sinuous dragons, giant lizards, and even the occasional toad. While these noble creatures are beautiful in their own right, the women they accompany are the true treasures here.
