Tati Suarez's Seductive Paintings

Erotica // Thursday, July 26, 2012
"Tatiana Suarez is a Brooklyn-based Miami native. Her charming style is distinctive; first, the trademark eyes that draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Suarez takes full advantage of the oil paint's ability to create creamy, soft images on canvas. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. The doe-eyed figures look childlike, but also exude sexual overtones, ornamented with plants, insects and other unsettling accompaniments. Beauty is presented concurrently with exotic -- even creepy -- creatures to create enchanted narratives."

Here's another look at erotic photographer Julian Baker and his ongoing series of triptychs, each exploring conceptions of sexuality, identity, and art.

The Vintage Flavor of Keyamo Onoge

Erotica // Monday, July 23, 2012
Photographer Keyamo Onoge was born and raised in West Africa and currently resides in Huntington, WV. After moving to the US for college, he fell in love with photography, in particular the moody nostalgia of vintage photographs. "There is something about the muted colors and tones," says Onoge, "the accidental light leaks, the way they crash into each other that elicits an emotional response."

Olya Generalova

Erotica // Monday, July 23, 2012
Based in Volgograd, Russia, photographer Olya Generalova's delicately composed yet sexually charged images of a nude wrapped in sheets of clear plastic offer a glimpse into the promising young artist's world of vulnerability and eroticism. When set against a natural backdrop, the naked female form stands in even starker contrast with her synthetic tunic and aching eyes.

'This is explicitly symbolised in the Rapture series by the use of porn stars as the vehicle for the expression of this 'spiritual' emotion, the shedding of carnal bodies giving way to an abstract purity beneath...'

Fashion photographer Manuel Diumenjó captures an impressionistic series of black and white nudes in which he closely crops portions of the body.
