Brooklyn based Russian artist Alexandra Rubinstein painted this series of un-cropped stills taken from vintage porn films made during the Golden Age of Porn that was launched with the well-known “Deep Throat”. Inspired by the title of the 1985 movie, they highlight the shots taken of women’s faces – which are less emphasized in contemporary videos. This disparity questions progression in sexuality and value placed on female pleasure as pornography became more accessible and mainstream. The portraits also explore the emotional states of the women in these films. While the styling and acting portray a romanticized version of reality, the faces suggest more honest emotions like vulnerability and withdrawal – left up for interpretation of the viewer.

She has also painted a series of hearthrob celebrity men performing cunnilingus last year which is worth checking out too!
