Ben Hasset's "Dedoublement"

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
The talented Ben Hassett shoots the porcelain-skinned Magdalena Frackowiack for the "Dedoublement" editorial in the October 2011 issue of Numero France. This series addresses the theme of doubling, presenting the model multiplied and composited over herself like a visual montage of sorts. Each piece presents a different theme from spiked masks and leather to dark lips and animal furs, generating a dynamic, sex-charged composition of multiples. The beautiful Magdalena seems to take on monumental proportions as her image interacts with itself, sparking chemistry in a strange, sensual crossing of portraits. 

"All Dirty Bastards" by Svetlin Velinov

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
An incredibly detailed digital artist whom we've featured in our illustration section, Svetlin Velinov works wonders with a tablet. His illustration "All Dirty Bastards" is a gruesome, unsettling vision of lust embodied. The depth of detail, texture and color in this piece is stunning, lending a strange fine-art veneer to this dynamic illsutration. Take a good look up close at these so-called "Dirty Bastards"-- Velinov is able to depict the lewd and lascivious with such lovely, painterly strokes that it's difficult to decide whether this illustration is more beautiful or creepy. We love the way Velinov is able to walk that line.  

An Homage to "Nude Descending a Staircase"

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
In February, a start-studded roster of 31 contemporary artists debuted an homage to Duchamp's iconic painting "Nude Descending a Staircase." This piece by Kathleen Gilje, called "Portrait of Andrej, Male Model, as Nude Descending a Staircase after Gerhard Richter," is one of the pieces generated solely for this event inspired by the master of the Dadaists. The only stipulation for the works was that they could not exceed the 58X35 inch proportions of the original "nude" and that they had to in some way invoke Duchamp. The artists did not seem to find this difficult--Duchamp's influence on contemporary art is ubiquitous. "Everybody I show here already does that in some way," said Naumann, the head of the exhibition.

Milan Hrnjazovic's Little Briar Rose

Erotica // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Using a combination of figurative art and free-flowing abstraction, Serbian painter Milan Hrnjazovic endeavors to visually represent the emotional anxiety of the young adult female's evolving sense of self-image and burgeoning sexual desires. In particular, he turns a modern eye toward the sexual awakening of a Grimm fairy tale heroine, "Little Briar Rose," endowing her with the intelligence and self-awareness to confront and overcome the pains of maturation rather than retreat into a deep, dreamless slumber from which only the virility of a grown man can arouse her.
