A deeply talented artist, Will Cotton, is a painter who works primarily featuring landscapes composed of sweets, often inhabited by human subjects. I feel that the way he embraces women and their bodies is done in such an elegant way, a way that demonstrates that the body is a wonderful piece of art, to be embraced for its beauty. Not solely for viewing sexually. He likes to push “beyond the pleasure principle”. Will is one of the 25 featured artists in the now-famous Who Shot Natalie White exhibit of mine. It was an honor for me to work with Will and I look forward to collaborating again in the future.
