Ethnicity

Ethnicity One ~ the series

Ethnicity One ~ the series

Ethnicity Two ~ the series

Ethnicity Three ~ the series

The artworks entitled “Ethnicity” have just been released in three series, entitled “Ethnicity One, Two and Three” respectively.  Each series had 24 works and each work is available as an edition of 5.  Each work is available in two sizes, specifically: 40cm x 60cm and 60cm x 80cm.  Regardless of size, each work will be strictly limited to an edition of 5 in total.  The works are black and white toned archival pigment prints on Hahnemuhle FineArt Baryta paper. Matted and framed to museum standard.

As the title suggests, “Ethnicity” is intended as a figurative study of ethnic origin and interaction (not to be confused with “race”).  An interesting comparison of the difference between “ethnicity” and “race” can be found via the webpage entitled “Ethnicity vs. Race”. The three artwork series can each be viewed via the respective links: Ethnicity One, Ethnicity Two and Ethnicity Three.

Art Erotica – Cork Street, London 19th – 27th January 2012

Erotic art has a long and distinguished, if controversial, tradition in the history of modern art. Arguably, eroticism in art brings us closer to our humanity, yet there are few genres in the arts that have been as under-represented and unjustly maligned as expressions of what we, in all our rich diversity, find erotic.

Art Erotica is a new event in the London art calendar that will present a long- overdue, high-profile opportunity to exhibit for artists producing work in the erotic genre. Brought to you by the organizers of the Cork Street Open Exhibition – a respected international event, founded four years ago – Art Erotica will benefit a selected charity and will be juried, with submitted work carefully and rigorously chosen for exhibition by a panel drawn from leading figures in the UK art world.

The diverse Exhibition will span most mediums, including painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, drawing, mixed media construction and original prints by emerging and established artists from around the world. Photographs by American photographer James Armstrong, and drawings by internationally acclaimed artist Jamil Nasqh, will be shown for the first time.

In addition to spectacular visual art we are happy to present talks and public readings by a stellar line-up of art historians, critics, philosophers and actors, all focused on the erotic theme.

We invite you to join us in January to explore, discover and discuss Art Erotica. The full events programme can be downloaded HERE

Inversion, Perversion

Inversion, Perversion ~ the series

Inversion, Perversion ~ the series

Inversion, Perversion ~ the series

A recently created series of artworks, consisting of a mix of negative inversion and solarisation (Sabattier effect) of the digital negative.  “Inversion, Perversion” is a play of reversal, concealing that revealed, revealing that concealed, white to black and black to white, addressing the perception and conception of erotism within society, along with colour and race.  “Inversion, Perversion” brings a new perspective to classic erotism, challenging traditions, whilst at the same time using age old traditions within the process of creation and production.

A series of 14 artworks, each available in 5 editions (+ 2 a.p.).  Archival pigment prints, on Hahnemühle Photo Rag (308 g/m2).. Dry mounted with a 4 cm passe-partout, framed behind glass.  Print size is 80 cm (31.50″) x 60 cm (23.62″).  Signed, dated and numbered verso and issued with artist’s Certificate of Authenticity.

The Art of Love

The Art of Love ~ the series

The Art of Love ~ the series

The Art of Love, is perhaps one of my most sexually explicit artwork series that I have ever produced. Interestingly, it is also one of the most popular.  The objective of the series was to capture the most intimate of moments and to portray them visually in a truly sensual and emotional context, rendering the explicit sexual/pornographic aspects of the images secondary.  I believe this series succeeds in this objective.

A series of 20 artworks, each available as an edition of 5.  Cross-tone archival pigment prints, printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag (308 g/m2), dry mounted, and framed behind glass to client’s specification. Signed, dated and numbered verso, with Certificate of Authenticity.  Artworks measure 80 cm (31.50″) x 60 cm (23.62″).

Shunga

Shunga ~ the series

Shunga ~ the series

Shunga is a Japanese term for erotic art.  Most shunga are a type of ukiyo-e, usually executed in woodblock print format.  While rare, there are extant erotic painted handscrolls which predate the Ukiyo-e movement.  Translated literally, the Japanese word shunga means picture of spring; “spring” is a common euphemism for sex.

The ukiyo-e movement as a whole sought to express an idealisation of contemporary urban life and appeal to the new chonin class.  Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality.  As a subset of ukiyo-e it was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favour with the shogunate.  Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers, and it did not detract from their prestige as artists.  Classifying shunga as a kind of medieval pornography can be misleading in this respect.

This photographic portrayal of Shunga is one of the very few photographic portrayals in existence.  The series consists of 26 artworks, each available as an edition of 4.  Printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo (290 g/m2), dry mounted and custom framed (Japanese themed) behind glass. Signed, dated and numbered verso, with Certificate of Authenticity.  Artworks measure 120 cm (47.24″) x 90 cm (35.43″).

For The Love of God

For The Love of God ~ the series

For The Love of God ~ the series

nun is a woman who has taken vows committing her to live a spiritual life.  She may be an ascetic who voluntarily chooses to leave mainstream society and live her life in prayer and contemplation in a monastery or convent (courtesy of Wikipedia).

As the definition states, “a nun is also a women”, a female, with the same physical make-up of any other women. This series of works pays hommage to this fact, to the women within the closed domains of religious beliefs.

A series of 30 artworks, each available as an edition of 4 (+2 a.p.).  Archival pigment prints, printed on Arches Infinity Cold Press (225 g/m2).  Signed, dated and numbered verso, with Certificate of Authenticity.  Dry mounted and framed behind glass to client’s specification.  Artworks measure 120 cm (47.24″) x 90 cm (35.43″).
