Erotic Review Magazine (The Art Issue) ~ Featured Portfolio

Erotic Review Magazine is a is a monthly UK-based lifestyle publication.  Covering eroticism and sex-related topics, it was first published in 1995 as a print magazine, migrating to an eZine format in June, 2010. In addition to the monthly magazine, available to paying subscribers as a virtual flipbook (or a downloadable PDF), the magazine’s website also features blogs and reviews available free of charge.

Erotic Review comprises feature articles, fiction, photography portfolios and a review section, taking a literary approach to eroticism and sexuality. The magazine’s stated purpose is ‘to appeal to the primary sexual organ – the brain’ which it achieves through ‘great writing, which is witty, funny, intelligent, knowledgeable’ (ref. Wikipedia).

The February edition (number 118) is entitled “The Art Issue” and features a special portfolio of my work and myself as an artist, with a full 15 page colour spread.  The featured portfolio pages can be downloaded in PDF format by clicking this LINK (be sure to view the PDF in two page format, so you can see the pages side-by-side).  The full magazine can be downloaded from the Erotic Review website, with prior subscription.

In Dreams ~ a new landmark series of artworks . . .

In Dreams 01

In Dreams 08

In Dreams 09

Sigmund Freud postulated that dreams are the symbolic expression of frustrated desires that had been relegated to the unconscious mind, and he used dream interpretation in the form of psychoanalysis to uncover these desires.   ”In Dreams” presents you with a visualise insight of this process and a true celebration of female beauty and sensuality!

There are nine artworks in the series because it is common belief within dream symbols, that the number nine is a symbol of completeness, and that it may represent personal fulfillment (in Greek mythology the number nine symbolizes the Goddess, the highest personal fulfillment of the feminine psyche).

A series of 9 artworks, each available as a limited edition of 3 (+ 2 a.p.).  Pigment prints on Hahnemühle German Etching (310 g/m2), framed to client’s preference.  Measuring 120 cm x 90 cm (47.24″ x 35.43″). Signed, numbered and dated verso by the artist, and each work issued with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The full artwork series can be viewed on my official website by clicking HERE.  These artworks are being presented to a piece of back-ground music entitled Saga’s and Dreams, written, composed and performed by Danish artist Nicky Bendix. I recommend you view the artworks in full-screen mode (double-click on the image, and then run as a slide-show).

These works are available world-wide via selective representatives.  Please e-mail me for specific details and additional information.
