Its Friday. Maybe you had a long week. Maybe you have been at SXSW on the party circuit and need a glass of water. Maybe you are in NYC and looking for Spring. Maybe you just want to see some classic dark and erotic photography from Japanese artist, Yoshihiro Tatsuki. All of the above, the former, the latter, and enjoy.

Known for their detailed black-and-white ink drawings, their work often teeters on the absurd, humorous, and perverse. Their classic hypnotic video for Sébastien Tellier's "Look" is dedicated to our favorite part of the female anatomy...

Dacia Gallery proudly present’s “A Space Within,” Rob Zeller’s new series of figurative paintings that capture the contemplative perhaps spiritual mind states of his subjects. Rob has overlaid portions of the figures and landscapes with the swirling mandalas. Zeller reflects, “The women in these paintings are not made to entice you, they are having their own experience with their surroundings, while experiencing themselves and the universe beyond. We share these moments with them through their outside appearance.” The show runs through March 20, 2015.

Cath Riley does for graphite what Bernini did for marble. ”The drawings are part of an on-going evolutionary process of exploration and development," the artist writes, "and thus serve only to mark and represent a particular stage in my abilities and understanding. Current on-going experimental ‘drawing’ includes very large scale drawing, based around the human figure, which are very different in character from the pencil portrait and ‘flesh’ figure drawings which are featured here. Some of the new work is abstract in nature.”
