God Bless Miami

Erotica // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
While the rest of the Universe is at Art Basel in Miami right now, all I can do is sit here and dream of South Beach hot pants, Rollerblades, snow-cones and Cuban sandwiches (oh, and art too).

In the meantime, a luscious image from Remember Paper to keep us dreaming...

Suzannah Sinclair's Sensual Women

Erotica // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
'My work is based on mirroring and transference, finding things in the world that already exist and projecting my personal experiences and emotions on to them. Reinterpreting that experience as a painting for others to then do the same. Being a woman, it’s what I know and what I am drawn to. The intangible thoughts and feelings behind a look on a face, a gaze, or a gesture of a body and drawing it out and highlighting it is at the center of my practice...'

A Little Lesson in Art History

Erotica // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
This painting, 'Philosophy in the Bedroom' (1947) by surrealist painter René Magritte is a combination of two earlier paintings; Hommage to Mack Sennett and the Red Model series. The title is taken from Marquis de Sade's Philosophy in the Bedroom (1795) which begins: TO LIBERTINES: Voluptuaries of all ages, of every sex, it is to you only that I offer this work; nourish yourselves upon its principles: they favor your passions...

Amazing work by the French artist Thomas Saliot who is currently living between Marrakech and Paris. He has been painting and travelling for the last 20 years, creating incredibly sensual canvases of young, provocative females.

The Half Bottom of the Body by Liu Jin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
"The Half Bottom of the Body" is a series of work by the participation of pedestrians on the road and by my close friends. I choose partners in different environments, explaining my ideas to them, and then we would work together, if they agreed to join. This project is still going on. The photographs interrupted their daily routines, producing amazing results and triggering novel observations, separating the thinking of ordinary life." Liu Jin
