Erotica // Monday, May 30, 2011
Peter Franck is a fine-art, absurd-erotic photographer with a subtle humour that glances at the dark world of paid pain.

Vanessa Beecroft's Special Projects

Erotica // Monday, May 30, 2011
It's art, it's fashion, its erotica, it's good, it's bad, it's sexist, it's not. It's Vanessa Beecroft's performance art. And one's mind can feel both uncertainty and unpected excitement when confronted with it.

Beauty in the Grotesque

Erotica // Saturday, May 28, 2011
Shaun Leane for Alexander McQueen.  Spine Corset, spring/summer 1998 Aluminum and black leather.  “I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists.

Raw Humanity

Erotica // Thursday, May 26, 2011
'In carnivalesque shades of acidic yellows, hot pinks, and orange-reds, Dasha Shiskin depicts depraved scenes of crowded humanity with a deceptively sweet rendering.
