Lovisa Burfitt's Fashion Figures

Erotica // Tuesday, April 01, 2014

The Legendary Mati Klarwein

Erotica // Tuesday, April 01, 2014

The masthead of the psychedelic visual revolution, Klarwein's aesthetic is a beast of its own and its reverberations can be seen in a staggering amount of contemporary illustration, especially artwork made for music. These wild, expressive images harness an erotic power of their own, fueled by the iconically free-flowing sexuality of the era.

You Love Pornography

Erotica // Sunday, March 30, 2014
Rebecca Cooper makes sex collages. Kaleidoscopic arrangements of pornographic images, abstracted and spiraling in endless circles of lust, pleasure and skin. Her titty/willy hobby-craftworks are then arranged together on display, in massive wall installations, like groupings of sexual snowflakes from a sinful sky.

Stephen Irwin's Ghostly Pornography

Erotica // Friday, March 28, 2014
'Stephen Irwin is a chaste fantasist and an erotic iconoclast, remaking the sacred naïve pornography of his adolescence into a shifting representation of sexuality that is not simply a catalog of ready-made alternatives but a redefined and fanciful altered state...
