BODY TALK

March 27

There’s a visceral truth that I’ve been running from for a good 3 years.

After some tumultuous months with my new husband, it dawned on me that my approach of arguing for my ‘truth’ and forcibly justifying my position was all wrong. Rather than reasoning and deflecting as my usual way of avoiding emotional confrontation, a wiser and indeed, more seemly tactic was to actually allow the gravity of our argument to consume me; then navigate my response from there.

Let’s rewind.

WORLDS OTHER THAN MY OWN

When I was in my 20s, I drowned in the abyss  of my own spirituality. The physical world wasn’t delivering on its hedonistic promise and my attempts to claim a guy or look more f***able dimmed in comparison with my more astute and glamorous social rivals.  Thus, esoteric work brimmed with possibility, a solace from rejection and a frontier into a world much vaster than my own.

While other artists toil away and pay their dues in endless market stalls or exhibitions before some buy-in occurs, Duffy’s emerging art career appears to have happened entirely by accident.

The fresh faced Sydney business man has amassed quite a following in Hong Kong, where his slightly pleased bobblehead can adorn the desk of the most prestigious business man. Adler counts CEOs and high powered executives among his network – so how did this boy from Sydney’s North Shore break into Asia’s elite?

SENSUAL WOMAN

When pondering the most defining feature of authentic femininity, the quest for answers invariably leads back to sensuality. That ephemeral, soft, beguiling and mysterious essence that is both erotic and wide-eyed, subversive and untouchable. There’s an innocence to its expression – and don’t we all crave something uncomplicated, yet potent as the greatest pleasure?
