New Galleryblog Logo: Eva in Chains

I have always been intrigued (see the July 12, 2007 entry at the old school Tex[t]-Mex Galleryblog site) by this photoshoot Eva Longoria did for the UK's Arena Magazine--on the one hand, it represents an erotic and electric staging of the increasingly ubiquitous Chicana star; on the other, it semiotically suggests some odd, disturbing allegory of Geppetto gone amuck, Pygmalion channeled by the Marquis de Sade, with Longoria, in chains, as some odd, naked Pinocchio--Eliza Doolittle with couture by Michel Foucault... or something like that.

I'll bring El Chapulin Colorado back if I get enough grief for Eva!
