Patrice Murciano was born May 27, 1969 in Belfort and grew up in the South of France.

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). Be sure to keep up with Juxtapoz as I'm sure there will be some recaps to all of the art Madness that is Art Basel Miami this week. In the meantime, a luscious image from Remember Paper to keep us dreaming...

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...

Boris Hoppek "Spanning Erotic Space and Time"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Boris Hoppek (born 1970, in Kreuztal) is a German contemporary artist based in Barcelona. His artistic roots lie in graffiti, but today his work spans painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation art. His work has been used in advertising campaigns as well. Hoppek's trademark is a symmetric oval, which appears in most of his work either alone or in a constellation of three, thus forming a face.

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

Kelsey Henderson's Crushes

Erotica // Monday, December 03, 2012
'At first seemingly influenced by fashion photography and photorealism, Kelsey Henderson’s work is a brutally honest study in perception and attraction. Her painting style is comprised of seemingly invisible layers which connect to her subjects like skin.  Lying at the heart of her work, the emphasis on the skin enables the artist to continue exploring the idea of the Platonic Crush, an attraction to beauty devoid of sex, ignoring gender and embracing physical and emotional flaws...
