Tits and Phones: Richard Kern

Erotica // Thursday, May 17, 2012
'Richard Kern is a photographer and a portraitist.  For more than two decades Kern has sought to unravel and illuminate the complex and often darker sides of human nature. Kern makes the psychological space between the sitter, photographer and audience his subject. With his dry, matter of fact approach, he underlines the absurdity of truth and objectivity in photography while playing with our reliance upon taxonomies around sexual representation.'

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
'I take portraits, with a special focus on beautiful girls, with 35mm film cameras and Kodak 400 film. Mostly I feel like my photos are about looking for that feeling of freedom, experiencing mortality, and also seeking to realize beauty in a way that's spectacular - in that it's common place, but it's vivid - like the way you would experience a memory from your youth....' Photographer Mandy-Lyn.

Tony Easley's Booties

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
The curved line plays a large part in Tony Easleys’s life – so much so that he obsessively hand draws line after line, or booty after curved, voluptuous booty. After studying in Brighton, Tony now lives back in his birthplace of deepest, darkest South London. Incredibly vibrant, pop derrieres from this talented London-based illustrator and designer.

Kukulaland

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Kukula's paintings center on feminine, doll-like figures, often surrounded by objects with sometimes clear, sometimes obscure symbolic meaning. The work registers the influences of both classical European art forms and contemporary pop culture. In her figures' poses Kukula recalls classical portraiture, yet the style is manifestly modern and pop-influenced. Kukula's compositions thereby disclose her personal struggles as mediated by a rich multi-cultural heritage.
