Subversive Cuts from Tom Gallant

Erotica // Friday, May 17, 2013
Armed with a sharp knife and an eye for intricate patterns, Tom Gallant uses hardcore porn as his canvas, creating detailed figures and stenciled ornamentation that recall the more constraining social and artistic attitudes of the late Victorian age.  As the artist explains, "I use pornography as a representation of our visual culture, the underlying ideas are used to connect the motifs and concepts, whether it is the idolatry of youth, flesh, sex, or the exploitation of the female and feminine. Pornography is the medium but not the message."

Ben Reyer's Impossible Objects

Erotica // Friday, May 17, 2013
"Women have always been my inspiration," says artist Ben Reyer, "but at the same time they confused me - for me they are impossible objects. We covet them, run after them and love them, live with them, but it hard to understand them." Reyer weaves such themes as the influence of media on society, the horrors of war, religion, and sexuality into his collage work, with the intent of bridging the gap between art and kitsch. His work will be on display at the NENI ART Collective in Vienna, Austria on May 29th, 2013, starting at 7:00 PM.

New Erotic Sculptures by Killian Skarr

Erotica // Thursday, May 16, 2013
"The art that I create confronts the carnal aspects of the human condition directly by examining fear, pain and lust through archetypal imagery and the threat of real visceral experience.  The form of each sculpture is meant to compel the eye toward closer examination while simultaneously arousing fear and erotic desire as the function is comprehended.  The sculptures invoke scenes of violent sex and death, while the eye is forced to trace the organic structures and primal patterns that compose them in a mad ecstasy of autonomic polarities..."
