Namio Harukawa 2

namio_tribute_r

The number of artists who could be classified as a “femdom artist” is quite small,  so when one of us passes it is fitting to mark it in some way.
Namio Harukawa died last month as I reported in the previous post .
So I wished to draw something in memory of him and, much as a composer might take a theme of another late composer, and write his own set of variations on it, I took a representative drawing of his and without copying it, redrew it in my own style. It is important to emphasise that I was not trying to make it look like his art or pretend to make it one of his artworks.
It was simply taking the theme, and re-interpreting it in my own way.

For the model I asked permission to include the likeness of
Ms Ryoko Kitagawa 北川繚子女王様, founder of Kitagawa-pro  films, who was for many years associated with him.

Well, the result was rather strange-quite different from my usual work, but I was pleased with the experiment.
I hope he would be too.

Portrait of the Goddess Morning Star

morningstar_r

For this portrait I was given free rein to develop a very weird setting.
The Goddess Morning Star ( exotic Gothic Queen of the Night) blissfully chooses and examines her whips, imagining the torment they will inflict.
In the background her sacrificial victim awaits, bound securely by an…insect, is that ? Some rather invasive huge flowers hover nearby as tendrils from bizarre plants hold him fast.
An excursion into a dark and unsettling fantasy world…

 

 

The Exhibition

anal_exhibition

This portrait, made for a private couple in Germany, shows the Mistress walking round an exhibition dedicated to “Anal Expansion” showing toys and equipment of all kinds . The exhibits all feature well-built living male slaves and their sighs of pleasure and groans of pain fill the auditorium throughout the day.

Because the exhibits in this portrait are likely to distract from the subject of the portrait herself they have deliberately been made quite dark.

Portrait of Mistress Mera

mera_mid

An Ancient Egyptian fantasy for Manchester Mistress Mera.
Why such an unusual theme?  Manchester is a far away by distance and culture but Mistress Mera’s name and looks can easily seduce you into this exotic fantasy…

Seen here as powerful and ruthless Queen of the Nile, she stands at the water’s edge where her slaves sit ready to transport her down the river in her personal galley.
One of her personal slaves (who commissioned the painting) deferentially adjusts one of her shoes. Her dress is based on an Ancient Egyptian kalasiris though with some fantasy latex added and it is certain that at some point in the voyage she will be using that vicious black whip!

Portrait of Lady Saintlawrence

lady_saint_lawrence

An exotic garden in South Asia.
The slave is fixed to an elaborate metal frame above an ornamental pool, awaiting the cruel whip of Lady Saintlawrence.
She looks round towards us as she prepares to apply the first stroke to his clear taut flesh. To the side other slaves await their turn and shiver in fear, though simultaneously yearn for her brutal efficiency.

Though Lady Saintlawrence can be cruel and merciless towards her slaves, I discovered her to be a very warm and engaging personality on meeting her in London for one of my personal sketches (above).
She is the founder of AMYSTIQUE INTERNATIONAL, the society promoting femdom throughout South Asia and though based in Amsterdam has an international travelling lifestyle.

Lady Ibicella goes hiking

ibicella_hiking

In a previous artwork we saw Lady Ibicella as French schoolmistress.
But every teacher needs some time off and so here she has gone hiking (in French -randonnée) in a beautiful exotic resort by the sea with her personal slave.
He is useful for a lot of duties- setting up the tent, cooking, cleaning her boots, but most of all, to receive her passively as she winds down with a very long relaxing shafting at the end of the day, while watching the sun sink below the horizon…

Portrait of Goddess Virgin

goddess_virgin_art

This depiction of Goddess Virgin started many months back with a thought of a road of banknotes thrown down for a mistress by adoring admirers. (Yes they aren’t the right colour for banknotes, I know)
The idea then developed into a road paved with gold, and by extension to the Yellow Brick Road from the Wizard of Oz.
Then how would this Goddess look in a Dorothy costume, made subtly sexy by black leather gloves, a basket containing chains and collars etc.
In her right hand a riding whip , in her left that ever ubiquitous lifeline – the mobile phone.
Following her some way back struggling to keep up – a human ‘Toto’. The Lion looks on with stiff tail but the Tin man and Scarecrow are just resting in the field, having a quiet smoke -too exhausted to notice!

Portrait of Goddess Cleo

cleo_art_mid

Three portraits in one – a triptych. Goddess Cleo is a mistress of many skills so for this portrait we came up with the unusual idea of presenting her in three of her favourite activities; strap-on, foot worship and whipping, all taking place within a fantasy chamber.
I was particularly pleased in this that the likenesses for all three were near, as just one likeness is usually the most difficult stage of the portrait.

Portrait of “Mistress V”

mistress_v

This commission from a lifestyle couple draws its inspiration from Gothic romance, with its emphasis on horror and the darker aspects of the human imagination. “Mistress V” is a voracious reader of this genre and so she is here depicted as a Byronic heroine playing with a particularly cruel adaptation from the French Revolution.

Her submissive partner who commissioned this writes…

“Mistress V” is the subject of my adoration in a purely private capacity. Some years ago I fell at Her feet to persuade Her to fulfil fantasies by dispensing Her dominatrix gifts. Thankfully She conceded this to me and now this work worships Her in renewed vigour. Sardax has beautifully captured Mistress’ winning and knowing smile in a startling way, at once innocent yet dark in its depths. By converting my vague idea on Her gothic passion into a work of such beauty, you can almost overlook the terror awaiting the bound body as the eye moves across the scene to the wilderness beyond the window …”
