Crocheted Phalluses by Andrea Pritschow

Erotica // Wednesday, July 23, 2014
German artist Andrea Pritschow's body of work consists of hundreds of multi-colored crocheted phalluses. Pritschow challenges the traditional formula of male artists eroticizing female bodies by taking on stereotypically 'female' craftwork to not only eroticize but domesticate masculinity and male virility. Her knit castrations use de-contexualisation and abstraction to also call into question the idea of profanity within the art context.

Kirill Novoseltsev's heroic nude

Erotica // Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Kirill Novoseltsev paints bodies with absolutely wicked confidence, capturing this rippling female figure in an almost heroic light. Truncated at the knees, neck and shoulders, this figure hearkens back to greek statues, driving the focus instead to virtuosic handling of curves, shapes and flesh. Without a face to emit expression, this body still gives an enormous amount of attitude.

Kristen McMenamy as Muse

Erotica // Sunday, July 20, 2014
Miles Aldridge completely redefines the artistic "muse" in this photoseries featuring leggy model Kristen McMenamy. Poised as the inferred model for a series of paintings inside a paint-riddled studio, McMenamy takes on the role of "muse" both as subject of the photos and the paintings surrounding her. Aldridge mirrors the garish, saturated hues of the paintings in the light and tint of the photos themselves, lending a self-referential feel to each composition. Aldridge challenges the border between fine art, photography and fashion.
