Beautiful Blind Erotic Contour Drawings of Women in Amateur Porn

Katie Dunkle’s lyrical line drawings celebrate the power of the female form.

Artist Katie Dunkle, who works from a studio on the road in her tiny, solar-powered house, creates blind contour drawings of women in amateur porn. The series Girls “visually probes the indulgence of desire through blind-contour line drawings of the female figure,” the artist explains on her website. We first learned about the series — which is a thoughtful, feminist twist on an Egon Schiele-esque style — on Juxtapoz. From Dunkle’s artist statement:

The digital adult industry allows females to be groped in the darkness by a disconnected set of hands, transforming a real person into a two-dimensional cluster of flesh-tone pixels. In this respect the artist chooses to literally be blind to her artwork’s unfolding creation to honor these unknown women all the while asking and wondering, who are these women?

Katie draws attention to the countless women who are showcased for pleasure and then hastily discarded. Her priority as a female artist is to give these women a new pedestal for a different audience, whilst honoring the female body in all its glory.
