In Need of a Little Summer Dreaming with Ryan McGinley

Photography // Wednesday, March 18, 2015
We have a nice history with Ryan McGinley, pairing him up with Ricky Powell back in 2007 for an interview as the NYC photographer was ascending into major superstar status. And now McGinley is quite famous, but damn, his work from the last few years is his strongest to date. Mixing experimental uses of color, nudes, nature, light, and movement, Ryan's series of works he shoots each summer are beautiful and ethereal. He makes us miss summer... so here is a reminder. 

An Update with the Hyperreal, Hypersexual Bic Drawings of Juan Francisco Casas (NSFW)

Erotica // Tuesday, March 17, 2015
We are familiar with the works of Juan Francisco Casas because when it first appeared on the web a few years ago, we were all quite amazed at the bic pen detail and extreme photoreal quality of the work. Now, we trying to figure out how the artist gets this hypersexual work on social media...

Erotica // Sunday, March 15, 2015
These illustrations come from French artist Marion Fayolle's wordless book entitled "In Pieces." The book is a series of comic-style narratives about human relationships. These works are meant to make us think...

Rob Zeller "A Space Within" @ Dacia Gallery, NYC

Erotica // Friday, March 13, 2015
Dacia Gallery proudly present’s “A Space Within,” Rob Zeller’s new series of figurative paintings that capture the contemplative perhaps spiritual mind states of his subjects. Rob has overlaid portions of the figures and landscapes with the swirling mandalas.

We share these moments with them through their outside appearance.” The show runs through March 20, 2015. 

The Fine Art Nudes of Rasmus Mogensen

Erotica // Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Straight from Rasmus' site, because this is our first time seeing this work:  "Rasmus Mogensen wanted to become a photo- grapher from age 8 and began his career wor- king as a photo assistant in Copenhagen and New York. He had his first independent photo exhibition at age 17 at Gallery Photografica in Copenhagen. His fine art photography is now exclusively represented worldwide by the renowned Fahey/Klein Gallery. Based in Paris, and now partly New York, he has been wor- king professionally as a fashion and beauty photographer for the past 15 years.

The Mysterious World of Jan Durina

Erotica // Thursday, February 26, 2015
We like the type of photography where elements seem to appear out of nothing, where characters seem to be practicing witchcraft in some black forest in another dimension. And this is where we are at with Jan Durina. We posted about the work back in 2011, and we feel like this is fairytales on acid. 

Reflect Upon This: Nudes in Mirrors by Alva Bernadine

Erotica // Monday, February 23, 2015
These female nudes are of friends, acquaintances and volunteers from the internet. I often trawl charity shops and stores that sell cheap kitsch because I sometimes come across objects and trinkets that may lead to ideas for photos. I came across some small mirrors in a £1 shop. They were selling them for £1 for two. I bought six not knowing what I would do with them...

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
We have seen many photos of Lars Botten over the years, but never could put a name to the images. The Norwegian-born Botten works both in fashion and editorial projects, mixing tasteful nudes with almost nostalgic Hollywood style portraits.
