Each artist wields a certain kind of mojo that make human hearts skip a beat. The more one looks at their works, the more one will start to see the emotional complexity that makes their paintings far deeper than just being eye candy for the soul. Their works span the full array of human emotions, from longing to innocence, to surreal flights of fantasy that only begin to hint at the more solemn emotions that most of us try and hide.

Sarah Joncas, a Jux favorite, deserves a little love from the Erotica department. Based in Toronto, Canada, Joncas received her degree in painting from the Ontario College of Art and Design. Her smooth-as-silk, watery-eyed women are mistresses, sorceresses, dreamgirls and girls-next-door. Her more erotically-charged work maintains the same strength of craft and visual charge with a sensual flair. Take a look at these beautifully-rendered dream-women.

With a well-rounded background from her years spent obtaining her BA in Fine arts from UC Santa Cruz, to her time spent in the skateboarding and snowboarding scenes, Caia’s environment has both molded and provided an eclectic background that makes her paintings come to life. She opens works with Sarah Joncas at Thinkspace Gallery this Saturday, June 16.
