The Surreal Photographs of Marta Macha

Erotica // Thursday, June 26, 2014
Marta Macha's black and white photography is strange, distorted and experimental presenting the female form in a non-traditional manner. In some of her photographs, Marta explores the body's curves through the cracks of a broken mirror. In others, her subject is interacting with a larger than life human hand...

Harry Bush: "Hard Boys"

Erotica // Thursday, June 26, 2014
Late illustrator Harry Bush's works can be found cataloged in his book of beach boys and military men entitled "Hard Boys." His drawings were created for magazines like Physique Pictorial, Mr. Sun, Touch, Drummer, and Stroke. According to the book's editor, Harry's cheeky name was not created to better suit his line of work, but was in fact given to him at birth...

Gene Guynn: "A Life In the Woods" Series

Photography // Thursday, June 26, 2014
We love this series so much, we wanted to take a look again. Gene Guynn is an artist from California. Guynn works primarily in film, developing it himself in his darkroom. His 'In The Woods' series sets female models amidst various forms of flora and fauna, both as intimate studio portraits and on location in a dreamy forest setting. The results are surreal and breathtaking.

The Intricate Erotica of Richard Müller (1874-1954)

Erotica // Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Richard Müller (1874-1954) was born in the Bohemian city of Tschirnitz as the son of a weaver. His artistic talent was evident early on.

Whoopy Beatriz Lourenco for C-Heads

Erotica // Wednesday, June 25, 2014
We love the simple stylings and high contrast black and white images of the beautiful Whoopy Beatriz Lourenco shot by Peter Kaaden in Ruhr for C-Heads.  With styling by Peninah Amanda, we're never mad at what can be done with a little lace, some fur and a whole lot of skin...

Prince Diamond is David Rappeneau

Erotica // Wednesday, June 25, 2014
The identity of David Rappeneau, a provocative illustrator that also goes by the name Prince Diamond, remains somewhat of a mystery in this deep vastness of the internet. Regardless, we've found his raw, seductive renderings to be both stimulating and nostalgic, and give us that same feeling of curious desire like the images of Aeon Flux did in our youth.

Francis Bacon's "Study for a Human Body"

Erotica // Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Francis Bacon was an Irish born figurative painter known for his bold, graphic and emotionally raw imagery. "Study for a Human Body," painted in 1991, is no exception for this reputation. The erotic symbolism visualizes a sexual charge in a uniquely Bacon manner.

Francesco Hayez: "Meditation"

Erotica // Tuesday, June 24, 2014
A gorgeous and ominous painting from Spanish master Francesco Hayez entitled "Meditation." Painted in 1851, this painting employs a virtuosic handle on lighting, using soft highlights and rounded shadows to emphasize the symbols in the woman's lap. The painting presents a cognitive dissonance between the high and the low, faith and transgression.

Andrew Jeffrey Wright: "Study Hard, Hang in There"

Erotica // Tuesday, June 24, 2014
An awesome comic from Andrew Jeffrey Wright celebrating some bizarre erotic sensibility. "Nuu Liife" is an image created "from my youth combined into one image, drawn from memory." We really appreciate this encouraging message from Wright.
