Kristen McMenamy as Muse

Erotica // Sunday, July 20, 2014
Miles Aldridge completely redefines the artistic "muse" in this photoseries featuring leggy model Kristen McMenamy. Poised as the inferred model for a series of paintings inside a paint-riddled studio, McMenamy takes on the role of "muse" both as subject of the photos and the paintings surrounding her. Aldridge mirrors the garish, saturated hues of the paintings in the light and tint of the photos themselves, lending a self-referential feel to each composition. Aldridge challenges the border between fine art, photography and fashion.

David M. Cook's Dirty Things

Erotica // Friday, July 18, 2014

Irene Alfaro's Oil Paintings

Erotica // Thursday, July 17, 2014
Irene Alfaro creates strange, raw paintings that feature scenes placing humans in claustrophobic compositions.

Nick J's Digital Nudes

Erotica // Thursday, July 17, 2014
Nick J is a wizard with a tablet. These photoshop renderings of nude models have an intensely painterly feel, and he wields the digital brush with as much sensitivity and nuance as many traditional oil painters do. Some might say that the idea of digital painting is ludicrous in itself, but the ability to work out blends and color schemes without the chemical and tactile hazards of sticky paint and solvents is quite appealing to many. Nick J may be one of them, and he's doing it well.
