Photography by Mandy-Lyn: I LUV AMERICA!!

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
'I take portraits, with a special focus on beautiful girls, with 35mm film cameras and Kodak 400 film. Mostly I feel like my photos are about looking for that feeling of freedom, experiencing mortality, and also seeking to realize beauty in a way that's spectacular - in that it's common place, but it's vivid - like the way you would experience a memory from your youth....'

Kukulaland

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Kukula's paintings center on feminine, doll-like figures, often surrounded by objects with sometimes clear, sometimes obscure symbolic meaning. The work registers the influences of both classical European art forms and contemporary pop culture. In her figures' poses Kukula recalls classical portraiture, yet the style is manifestly modern and pop-influenced. Kukula's compositions thereby disclose her personal struggles as mediated by a rich multi-cultural heritage.
