Sensual

The sensual and the erotic have been elements of art for centuries. These themes are sometimes employed through metaphor, but are often transparent. Represented through the nude form, desire and passion have been ever present in painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography.

When I produce sensual imagery, I feel an obligation to a strong aesthetic. I want to guide the eye through the composition. This is one reason many of these are in my tonal manipulation technique (similar to black and white/monochromatic.)

For more than a millenium, Indian drawings and paintings depicted acrobatic poses from the Kama Sutra. Nineteenth century Qing Dynasty (China) paintings depicted couples in amourous undertakings. Twentieth century artists such as Lucian Freud, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Pablo Picasso took on sensual and erotic subject matter.

With the invention of photography, nudes were one of the first subjects. With ever increasing ease and popularity of the medium, some backlash against raw eroticism is inevitable. Still, erotic and sensual photography is celebrated in fine art venues such as Sotheby’s and by photographers such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Hans Bellmer, Helmut Newton, Thomas Ruff, Man Ray, Bob Carlos Clarke, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Wim Delvoye.

In this collection of photography, sensuality is expressed through provocative poses.
