Teiji Hayama's Salvation and Innocence

Erotica // Monday, May 09, 2011
Teiji Hayama's paintings join together western and Japanese influences, combining different art historical periods with contemporary Japanese pop culture. Hayama's pale, etereal figures with frail bodies and pale tinited eyes often inspired by mangas, portray an angelic appearance which clashes with a penetrating and unnerving glare directed at the viewer.

The Spaghetti Eaters

Erotica // Monday, May 09, 2011
The scenarios Lynn Bianchi constructs emphasize the irony of body-consciousness. Small and heavy women cavort nude in celebratory displays of eating and dressing, challenging our ideals on weight, beauty and sexuality. Playing off Vargas pin-up girls, dress-up plays on sexuality, her work shows that every woman has import, in a nude spaghetti-eating way.

Nathan Appel's Dark Dreams

Erotica // Saturday, May 07, 2011
The deep, dark grit and grain of old polaroid film, the content of the solitary exposed, women engulfed in blackness and the discovery of something rich and forbidden.  Nathan Appel's photographic works seem to follow the words of Herman Hesse 'Among all my dreams the dark dream of love was most faithful' through the yearnings of his depictions in the night.

Are We There Yet?

Erotica // Saturday, May 07, 2011
Paintings by the incredible New York based artist, Eric White. Realism, tinged with the surreal and occasional eroticism, White's choice of imagery and palette seem to arrive straight out of an uncomfortable time between the Twilight Zone, a Hitchcock film and a living room from the 1950's- deeming themselves as classically painted contemporary works that make you feel like you're not quite home yet.

Save Yourself. The erotic works of Miu Mao

Erotica // Saturday, May 07, 2011
Fabulous disaster, dispair, and a little bit of lustful desire... the story behind Miu Mao's work is pretty incredible, and she shows that by creating erotic works with an underlying theme of how 'everything we survive makes us stronger'. Born in central Asia, now living in Berlin, Mao is a gorgeous disaster in progress.

The Ghastly Nudes of Luo Fa Hui

Erotica // Saturday, May 07, 2011
Luo Fa Hui brings an intellectual quality to his art.   His most recent work has become more unreal, exaggerated and mystical.   This mystical element comes from dramatizing the heads of his nudes instead of naturalizing the scenes. The works, done with oil paints, appear a little bit ghastly, as if he is trying to reveal something behind the faces, symbolistic to women and traditional ideas of poetic beauty.

Robert Heinecken: Sex and Food

Erotica // Friday, May 06, 2011
Robert Heinecken (1932-2006) thought of the use of sex in mass media not as a spectrum from fashion to pornography, but a continuum. He was most interested in porn strategies used by the fashion industry, and can be thought of as trying to make this transparent. His use of demeaning imagery of women in pornography was occasionally hard to reconcile with his sincere feminist position, but not with his habit of pushing limits imposed by others.

MouMou

Erotica // Friday, May 06, 2011
The candy-coated, futuristic skittle illustrations and digitally racey works of Monterrey MX's artist Mou will leave your mouth watering.  Hot, bright textures and graphically depicted girl on girl action straight out of a pitcher full of futuristic kool-aid.
