It’s one of those questions asked by Smash Hits interviewers everywhere, ‘If you had a superpower what would it be?’ and the kinkier of pop stars would answer, ‘X-ray vision’ before being slapped about by their PRs for being too dutty for a teen mag. We at MwahMwahMwah always wanted vision that didn’t quite go as far as x-raying. I mean, who wants to see borin gold bone. Ours was a more de-clothing vision, in which we got to see penage and plenty of it – although sitting on the 94 this morning, surrounded by the walking abortions of life, we’re glad our vision’s plain old 20-20 (yes, we are practically perfect in every way).
But for artist Nick Veasey it’s all about the X-Ray, and he’s spent the last goodness-knows-how-long working on a series of pieces called, naturally, X-Ray… more of which you can see over the jumpette.
X-Ray runs from 30th October 2009 – 10th January 2010 at Maddox Arts, 52 Brook’s Mews, London W1K 4ED.
