Temptations of Cakeland

Erotica // Wednesday, April 25, 2012
The work of Scott Hove and Cakeland are full of seduction and temptation through the sweet, icing glazed mouths, stilettos atop tauntingly gorgeous cakes.

Raoul Ubac

Erotica // Wednesday, April 25, 2012
We're kicking it old school this Wednesday morning with Raoul Ubac (b. 1910 - d. 1985), an experimental Belgian photographer, painter, and sculptor. Ubac decided to abandon his career as a forester to pursue art in Paris in 1929, and under the influence of the likes of André Breton and Man Ray, he dedicated himself to surreal photography until 1945, by which time his interest in surrealism had waned in favor of painting instead.

Paintings by Jeffrey Beauchamp

Erotica // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
'As kids we are generally encouraged to use and cultivate our imaginations, though once we reach adulthood the pressures of everyday existence tend to hone our more practical survival skills and leave our younger minds to fend for themselves. As an artist I can postpone certain aspects of growing up in the name of staying creative: while painting, for instance, I find a sort of disciplined daydreaming works quite well...' Jeffrey Beauchamp

Ren Hang

Erotica // Monday, April 23, 2012
Based in Beijing, photographer Ren Hang's provocative images cast light on an otherwise shadowy Chinese underground youth culture, where lust and indulgence run as rampant as anywhere else in the world. Predictably, Hang's stark erotic photographs have been banned in China, but with a growing list of international shows, his work escapes the confines of censorship and illuminates hidden corners of Chinese society.
