Ask Morgana 164: Marguerite Sauvage

Marguerite Sauvage, of Paris, or Sydney, or Montréal, or somewhere…

I don’t know what to make of Marguerite’s woman: part hippie chick with a sixties chic, part witch-queen writhin’ with a python, part psychedelic-tripped Barbarella, part innocent abroad (but quite prepared to jump into a girl-girl-guy threesome, or use her playstation to induce an orgasm), part Bardot, part Varoomshka, part Wicked Wanda, part diva, part candy girl licking honey from her fingers or posing in a basque, part Marianne Faithful, part poster girl for Biba or Feathers, part wild child in search of plain pleasure, part ‘la blonde’, part ingenue…

The artwork combines the minimal and the intricate, raises the doodle to high art, turns the catwalk-teenager pose into iconography. I like, I like, I simply like…
