Egon Schiele "The Radical Nude" @ The Courtauld Gallery, London

Erotica // Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It is funny to include these groundbreaking works in an Erotica section, yet looking at it another way, these works pratcially invented the term. From The Courtauld: Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career. Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

The Digital Darkness of Pierre Fudaryli

Erotica // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Mexico-based digital artist and photo manipulator Pierre Fudaryli is throwing us for a nice loop this morning as we gather our heads around this dark, stunning, and disturbingly absorbing series of works. The work is like a mixture of late-era Pink Floyd covers meets Dali meets an upsetting peyote afternoon.

The Surreal and Vintage Photography of Heinrich Heidersberger

Erotica // Friday, October 10, 2014
Heidersberger Heinrich was a German photographer born in 1906 and who passed away in 2006. he studied architecture briefly and attended painting classes given by Fernand Léger at the Académie Moderne in Paris and found himself trapped in the midst of surrealism and surrealist movement. But painting was only a first step. Heidersberger soon discovered his passion: photography. In particular, the American artist Man Ray, who also lived in the French capital in the early 1930s, was an artist who most inspired him. Here is a collection of his work...

Hauntingly Beautiful by Alexis Wood

Erotica // Thursday, October 09, 2014
Photographer Alexis Wood has a great resume shooting for high-end and widely read fashion mags, but we love this new series she shot called "Hauntingly Beautiful" featuring model Annamarie Bartolozzi. Of course putting someone in the woods with a good photographer is going to make for a good shoot, but the use of facepaint and costume makes this particularly an interesting take on fine art and fashion photography.

Matthew Stone: Ecstasy & Body Language

Erotica // Thursday, October 09, 2014
A throwback post if you will, we look at two bodies of work, figuratively intertwined here, from artist Matthew Stone.

The artist lives and work in London, UK.

The show will run from October 25—December 20th, 2014... 

Pop Art x Erotic Surrealism with John Wesley

Erotica // Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Born in 1928 in New York, artist John Wesley received his BFA from UCLA in 1950. Wesley's minimal range of colors and cartoon-like line work led him to be placed in the pop-art category in the 1960s. This series of works focuses on his subject's range of fleshy tones, again keeping a simple color palate of complimentary blue and yellow backgrounds. We found a great description of Wesley as a Pop Artist and Erotic Surrealist. We can go with that.
