A Little Thanksgiving Erotica

Erotica // Thursday, November 22, 2012
'Our apartment is set up with a huge bedroom, a generous kitchen and no dining room to speak of. So it isn’t too often that we throw dinner parties. In fact, we’ve never had guests over to eat. To drink, yes. To play, of course. Just not to dine. But when my 25th birthday happened to fall on Thanksgiving, my girlfriend Naomi decided that she wanted to do something extra special...'

The Lust and Indulgence of Terry Rodgers

Erotica // Thursday, November 22, 2012
'In my work, I attempt to reflect my sense of the times we are living in, and both how richly interesting they are and how difficult it is for most of us to navigate their uncharted waters.

And we live in this swirl of delicate gestures, driving desires, fantasy, economic complexity and interdependence, hierarchical separations, isolation and hope...'

To think that Vita di Milano's matte figurative paintings, with  voluptuous nudes and strong ties to art history, are simply further celebrations of the female form would be a mistake; in his paintings, di Milano "expresses his concerns about misconceptions and prejudice while elaborating on those socio/humanistic perspectives which are often masked by the veils of hypocrisy." Sort of reminds us of the Guerrilla Girls Met poster...

Each of these tactile black and white collages were handmade by the talented Erik Truchinski of Autumn Wind Photography who describes his work as "photograph[s] of the strange, obscure and anything I find beauty in and darkness hidden... the images I feel represent my mind." Erotic and dark, these collages feel like advertisements for the seedy underbelly of bondage culture.

Derek Woods' Erotic Polaroids

Erotica // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Derek Woods' analog and Polaroid photographs of naked women almost seem like vintage pin ups. While the soft edges and tinted lighting of his photographs almost distance the them from their viewers in both time and space, the sitters' frontal poses confront the camera, exuding a very modern confidence.
