The groupie is part of a series that investigates cultural and societal influences on human nature. Playing upon the Surrealist idea of the guitar having a feminine shape, I attached a pair of store display hosiery legs to a Danelectro. I sought to create a clever allusion between the musician and his instrument. By personifying the guitar as a woman, the instrument is not only the device to create his music but also his muse.
