Private Moments

Erotica // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
Haley, otherwise known as Cosmicmagnolias, shares the most intimate corners of her life through simple and candid photographs of her body, whether in repose, in action, or in the throes of passion. Her work is startlingly frank, poised on the edge of being uncomfortably close, but the viewer is inevitably drawn into her world of elegantly composed and lovingly captured moments of privacy.

Carnal Knots

Erotica // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
American photographer Dan Martensen ties the luminous Shannan Click in carnal knots, exploring the dark and alluring world of bondage for Exit Magazine. These gorgeous black and white images glow with sensuality, yet they also capture a film noir sense of foreboding and sexual agony, subtly questioning the voyeuristic and sometimes sadistic nature of our cultural objectification of women.

Francesca Woodman @ SFMoMA

Erotica // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
No sparkling sunrises in sight, the first Francesca Woodman retrospective had to unfold in the Fall when the haunting is subtle but pervasive. Slowly crumbling walls like falling  leaves are not swept away, but  form the soil from which many of her subjects take root Swathed in sepia, the black and white prints – save the large scale blueprints at the end of the exhibit - are surprisingly small, inviting  inspection and introspection.

Moments with Lou Ros

Erotica // Tuesday, November 08, 2011
'At the beginning, because my work is mainly based from photos, it is a selection similar to that of a photographer, capturing a moment, an emotion, something… The transition to painting, transforms this thing again as I see it or how I feel it. I build each painting slowly in my head, quickly on the canvas, but with many short breaks to think about the result…'

The Photography of Jeffery Scott

Erotica // Tuesday, November 08, 2011
Jeffery Scott creates photographs that stretch the boundaries of the refined image and the reality of the world. His work displays women with exposed machine-like innards, some of which are created with a vintage feel, and others that bring forth the feeling of the dominatrix. 

Fu Lei

Erotica // Monday, November 07, 2011
Fu Lei's little bunny voyeristically interrupts the scenes he creates with rotting food, nooses, satin pillows, and of course, the obese sexual acts that continue on. His work is amazingly rendered with graphite, despite the oddness of his art.

Mike Diana

Erotica // Monday, November 07, 2011
Inspired by the creepy and the eerie publications that Mike Diana would read as a child, he grew fond of sex and blood. He released his first comic, called "Boiled Angel," for which he was charged for three criminal offences of obscenity, and was court ordered to seek an evaluation by a therapist. However, these trials and tribulations never stopped his love for phallic symbols and gore.
