A 'trophy wife' by most definitions is a woman that a man marries who is good looking but lacks substance and intelligence. I would call that a negative concept because we have enough historical evidence to know that a relationship based on looks alone is flawed.
This image has a similar theme to my previous image, Skin Deep, in which I've attempted to portray another negative human trait in an eye catching way. Why I've concentrated on negative concepts, I don't know. It may sound strange to you but even my conscience self sometimes stays outside of the creative loop.
Because the vast majority of my work portrays physically beautiful women, you may think that I see physical beauty as important attribute in real life and that I may want a 'trophy wife' in the future. In reality though, beauty, that lacks substance underneath it, looks good on the shelf but it inevitably collects dust (and wrinkles) over time. I am much more interested in the things that stand the test of time. Model:

Favorite comment to date: I love the meaning behind this. Your explanation of the piece is very moving. I'm glad that not all men out there are shallow and want trophy wives.
