Evil Tender in Conversation with Keith P. Rein

Erotica // Monday, September 08, 2014
'Artist Keith P. Rein manipulates the viewers expectations of sex and nudity. Some of his compositions could be pornographic. Women with mouths full, faces glazed in bliss. But instead of the expected — in their face is a hotdog. An ice cream cone. His beautiful ladies bold, colored with the patina of summer cheer. What you find in Rein’s work are delightful fables of summer barbecues and candy treats...

Martin Eder: In the Flesh

Erotica // Monday, September 08, 2014
The recent work of Martin Eder is noted to be 'large-scale gray-greenish worn-out bodies, with the complexion of the underbelly of dead fish,' as the artist says himself. 'A rainbow coloured butt presents itself as a slimy, shimmering counterdraft to media role models, and lost diet competitions and neverending castings...

The Bawdy Embroidery of Alaina Varrone

Erotica // Saturday, September 06, 2014
'Connecticut based artist Alaina Varrone approaches the medium of embroidery with a folk artist’s touch with the humor and sensibilities of Monty Python. Her images of sex, death, and joy have the look and texture of unfinished Americana, a Comedy Central show laid out in graphic and macabre stitches.

Orlando Sanchez: Dark Nudes

Erotica // Friday, September 05, 2014
We came across this collection of gorgeously dark rendered nudes from creative Orlando Sanchez and were immediately attracted to their mysterious, graphic qualities. 'In the midst of July 2010, I arrived in Austin, Texas. I quickly embarked on a journey to figure out what I was going to do with my art. I needed to find out what fascinated and inspired me to create and explore a new body of art. The answer was beauty...  

Adams Carvalho: Seductive Rebellion

Erotica // Friday, September 05, 2014
Possibly one of the most attractive portfolios of erotic renderings that I've seen this year, the work of Adams Carvalho is subtly seductive and sexually provocative at the same time. With an obvious affinity towards gorgeously tattooed females (no arguments here), Adams portrays inked beauties in a appealing, muted and well designed light. Thank you for that. 

Claudia Candea's Visceral Art

Erotica // Friday, September 05, 2014
Romanian Artist Claudiu Candea creates seemingly normal figure drawings that are then dissected away to reveal underlying anatomy. His drawings are almost photographic, capturing intimate moments that are then made deeper by the exposed physiognomy. Splashes of color highlight the stripped-away areas, adding fields of visual energy to these visceral illustrations.

Vienna Feature: Gustav Klimt

Erotica // Thursday, September 04, 2014
“Klimt was exceptionally animal-like. His body exuded a peculiar odor. As a woman, one was really afraid of him.” This is a quote from Hilde Roth, one of the models that was prone to hanging about Gustav's studio in packs. The artist we all know best for gorgeous, gilded paintings like "The Kiss" was also very frank in his eroticism...

Vienna Feature: Kolomon Moser

Erotica // Thursday, September 04, 2014
Kolomon Moser was born in Vienna and studied at the Wiener Akademie and the Kunstgewerbeschule, where he also taught as a professor later in his life. While Moser designed architecture, furniture, jewelry and graphics, his paintings and drawings are most well known for their lines and repetitive motifs of classical design. If you walk around Vienna for long enough...

Vienna Feature: Franz Von Bayros

Erotica // Thursday, September 04, 2014
Franz von Bayros, born in 1866, was a commercial artist, illustrator and painter from Austria. He was best known for his controversial Tales at the Dressing Table portfolio, a virtuosic yet wildly provocative collection of erotic images that still strike us as bizarre and even unnatural despite having been created a century ago...
