As it turns out, one of the contestants is a prominent Kansas City artist named Peregrine Honig. Here is one of her pieces (click to enlarge):
Chip: "The Minnie Mouse tattoo between her titties, combined with the animal imagery, is suggestive of both natural and manufactured innocence. I find Peregrine's work as compelling as it is boner-inducing."
And not only does Peregrine "do art" (as Chip would term it), she also owns a KC lingerie shop (or "intimate apparel apothecary," according to the website) called Birdies Panties.
We recommend going to the website's home page, where you can dress a sketch of a naked model in various lingerie combinations by clicking on a series of thumbnail sketches:
Chip: "Can panties be art?"
Christina Hendricks (Mad Men's Joan) says in her piece "A Letter to Men" in Esquire: "Panties is a wonderful word. When did you stop saying 'panties.' It's sexy. It's girlie. It's naughty. Say it more."
Richard: "I will, Christina Hendricks. I certainly will."
"Work of Art" premieres on Bravo this Wednesday.
