Event Description

Erotic art shows are far, few and in between. 

Erotic art seems a strange genre to discriminate against as few of us would be here without sex, and as such, you would think it would be a subject of worship. Yet somehow a veil of false shame has been thrown over this ‘realm of desire’ made visible.

It’s been said, ‘Murder is a crime. Writing about it is not a crime. Sex is not a crime, but writing about it is.’ 

Is this still true in our ‘enlightened’ age of violence in movies and sex on TV?

In putting together this show, featuring the titillating  work of Terry ‘Davo’ Davis, Jacqueline Phillips, Wayne Hitchcock and Kathy LaVallee, I was reminded of that quote by Charles Baudelaire, who wrote, “All these sheep headed, bourgeois prigs who endlessly spout words like ‘immoral, immorality, morality in art’, or other such idiocies, reminded me of that 5 franc whore, Louise Villedieu, who once accompanied me through the Louvre - it was her first visit -only to blush most deeply, veil her face, tug continually at my sleeve, and ask me, before sundry immortal; statues and paintings, how it were possible that someone be allowed to put such indecencies on public display?”
