In his latest series, Love the Skin You're In, British atist Oliver Jones considers the implications inherent in how the media advertises, manipulates and exploits the imagery of flesh. Rendered in colored chalk pastel, the artist's application and delicate handling of his medium mirrors the way in which we apply products to our own skin. Capturing both the translucency and fragility of the skin's surface, Jones' drawings scrutinize subtle variations, colorations and superficialities. The meticulous and time-consuming process by which the artist creates his work is in direct contrast to the immediacy of imagery captured in today's society, and negates the rapid pace at which we are accustomed to consuming images.

We came across these paintings this morning of Gustavo Silva Nuñez, a Venezuelan artist who has a great skill of capturing subjects as they swim or are submerged underwater in a series of paintings. One of the best things we see in these paintings is the way he captures the surface of the water. Well done.

Not all of these paintings are in the "erotic" category, but most of them are of the NSFW work persuasion, and most of these paintings by Hubert de Lartigue are rendered beautifully. From full nudes, to an interest in belly buttons, to some very nice obsessios with tongues, de Lartigue uses acrylic on canvas for all these works.

And to think, the only Dirk we knew works in Dallas. We ran across these beautiful drawings by Dirk Dzimirsky last night, and as much as we love how he composes faces, we love the way he captures water and movement around the subject's face.
