Body Art - Part II: The Delightful Digital Art of Cecelia Webber

Works from the Butterflies series - Copyright of Cecelia Webber
This post is about the astounding work of artist Cecelia Webber. Webber works with both acrylics and experimental digital photography, but it is first and foremost the experimental photography that makes her a unique artist.

What do I mean by unique? Are all artists not unique? Well, all artists of course have a unique human personality but it is much harder to find a new visual language in which to express personal vision and ideas. Standing out as a unique artist by finding a unique artistic method and style of expression and making a new contribution to the world of art is arguably one of the greatest challenges an artist faces.

Although the aim of art is to explore and to present cutting edge visions and ideas there are still a lot of mediocre artists around who do not fulfill this aim. Likewise there are thousands even hundreds of thousands of photographers in the world today working with art photography.

Some photographers approach their medium with the primary goal of mastering its complex and scientific techniques, do so and go on to produce masterful and technically perfect pictures. But mastering the complex techniques of photography does not mean that you can call your work art and indeed many ‘art photography’ pictures are devoid of artistic vision or emotion.

Yet in spite of this it is also evident when you come across a truly talented artist who uses photography as her or his medium. Webber is one such artist. and her work is interesting because she experiments with photography and digital manipulation in order to express her artistic vision.

In art historical terms artists would traditionally use a medium the likes of oil, acrylics, watercolour, pencil, pastels etc. applied to canvas, board, paper etc. With the advent of the digital age comes the possibility and rise of digital art.

Whereas art traditionally has been based on an artist’s draughtsmanship i.e. his ability to sketch draw and paint by hand, the creation of digital art instead relies heavily on an understanding and use of digital media. So whereas you might define traditional art as based on an individual’s draughtsmanship presented on a canvas, digital art is based on an artist working with digital manipulation of information presented in a digital format.

The interesting thing here is that the photo and imaging editing software used in order to digitally manipulate information opens up possibilities for an artist that is not otherwise possible. This means that artists can start exploring and blazing new trails in artistic terms and that is exactly what Webber is doing with her experimental digital photography art work.

The experimental art of Cecelia Webber.

Webber's digital art is at the cutting edge because she creates a balance by linking the digital medium with the sensual aspects of the natural world.

 The appeal of these art works is immediate. A quick glance at them provides the viewer with a charming and colourful impression. Look more carefully though and you’ll discover the layered shapes of the naked human body making up the form of the flower or butterfly. Surprising but also sensuous and graceful these images leave you with a delightful feeling of wanting more!

Webber’s Flowers and Butterflies series.

Webber has chosen to work with two different themes so far for her experimental photography series, one called Flowers the other Butterflies.
Blue Lilac is from her Flower series and is a perfect example of how you may not see the human form that makes up the petals of the lilac at first glance.

 White Dandelion is another imaginative example of Webber’s artistic approach. Here she creates a stunning visual resemblance of the delicate flower we all know so well. But the real charm of this image is in the single white puffy seed flying away cause it takes us back to those childhood days where blowing on a dandelion and seeing the seeds fly away was a source of endless joy.

 In most of Webber’s works you do not see the complete naked human form. In Webber’s work Rose however, she breaks up and uses the naked female human form to make up the stem and crown of a rose but also depicts an intact naked female right at the centre of the rose. Apart from pointing to the source of her work, much like a painter might smear a thick layer of paint on a canvas with a spatula, seeing a whole naked female in the centre of a flower also draws parallels to a well established tradition of linking a delicate flower with female sensuality.

 Sprouting Seed is another ingenious work of Webber’s that shows her artistic depth. Webber has again used the female form to create her scene of a sprouting seed seen both above and below ground. The image clearly references the link between the female and that of fertility and germination. And of course we all know that new life is generated through the union between male and female.

 I also want to briefly mention and show Webber’s work Bird of Paradise because here she uses a male model instead of a female model to illustrate the flower with stunning visual effect.

 As visually stunning as the Flower series but perhaps more complex is Webber’s Butterflies series.

Monarch and Vivid are both complex images of colourful butterflies made up of the human form. When you look closely at the images you can clearly see the naked human forms that unify to create the image of a butterfly but in Reach, Webber’s image of a caterpillar hanging off a twig, it is much harder to distinguish the human form.

Webber has produced a number of works but not a single one that I don’t really like.  I would strongly urge you to explore Webber’s website and particularly encourage you to look at Marple, Yellow Lily, Summer Dandelion, Bell Peppers, Fiddlehead and Bleeding Heart.

Interview with the Cecelia Webber:
Erotic Art Lover: Cecelia, where did you get your inspiration for the Butterfly and Flower series?

Cecelia Webber: I enjoy the challenge of making something beautiful and simple looking out of the complicated shape of the human body.

EAL: You have previously remarked on the importance of the human body: “Why are we made to feel so ashamed of the human body in Western culture and so much of the rest of the world? Isn’t the body a beautiful, wonderful thing, deserving nothing less than to be celebrated?”. If your images are a celebration of the human form why have you chosen to illustrate other creatures of nature?

CW: I want to distract people from the nudity a little, so that it can be better appreciated. I want people to see the body in a new way. It’s hard to get people to really look at something in detail, and I think that the complexity of the pieces allows people to look closer at the body without feeling self conscious doing so. It’s different than looking at a nude portrait. Also though, I just enjoy making the pieces that way, and that’s the biggest reason why I do it.

EAL: What gave you get the idea of using the human body to create the form of butterflies and flowers?

CW: I once took a nude portrait of my back for another project, and it looked so much like a petal that I dropped the first idea and started working on this one right away.

EAL: What visual image should a viewer of your work pay more attention to, the human body or the flower or butterfly?

CW: It’s an aesthetic series, made – from my perspective – largely for the experiences I get out of making it. People can choose for themselves what to focus on, depending on what they find interesting about it.

EAL: I think people are often unaware of the complex and time-consuming process behind a digital work of art. Can you explain a bit about your work process for making a piece like Monarch from the Butterflies Series?

CW: Sometimes the pieces take up to two months to produce – first I shoot all the poses involved, edit them out of their background, which is very time consuming, then I go and shape the composition, at which point I often realize I need to reshoot one of my poses. I am currently in the process of remaking old pieces I made with a lower quality camera, and to remake them even is a huge, time-consuming challenge. I’m happy when a finished piece looks simple to the viewer though, because that means I’ve done my job right. It’s not easy to make something shaped out of human body photos look simple.

EAL: You sell your print mounted between clear acrylic on the face and black acrylic on the back. What is your reason for not letting your clients make their own choice regarding how they feel the print should be framed?

CW: There are a lot of complications with selling limited series. As the artist, I’d like my work to be accessible to anyone however they want it, but as somebody hoping to live off of art one day as a career, I have to standardize  to a certain extent to cope with the nature of the art world. Basically, my art is limited edition art work. For something to be considered a limited edition, you have to specify what is limited, how many there are, and what kind of things they are. I also want to offer posters, but if I was to now I’ve been told it would compromise my limited edition work and mean I can’t sell my art in most galleries. It’s far more complicated than I want it to be. In the future I will offer selected works at an affordable price point so everybody who likes my art can own it, and that is something that is being actively worked on at the moment.

EAL: Can you tell us about your next project or series?

CW: It will involve birds :)

Body Art - Part I

Pollock inspired work: 'Painted Nude I – 2005' - Copyright of Emma Hack

Although this blog deals with erotic art first and foremost, I want to take a closer look at body art because it represents another category of art that shows and deals with the nude human body in a non erogenous way.

In Body Art – Part I, I want to show the work of two body painters. In Body Art – Part II, coming soon, I will show the work of a photographer and digital artist who works with the body in an unusual way.

To some people the mere sight of a nude human body is enough to bring about associations of eroticism. I recently heard about an American woman who declined to buy a sculpture of a nude woman for her house because of her “14 year old boy living in the house”. I wonder if she also bans computers and TV in her house…

The two artists I’m discussing today work on the human body, using it as their canvas and most people would recognize that kind of work as body painting. Like any other profession, body painters are a group of people, some of whom who do a mediocre job and others who do it well. But there are some painters who take their craft and elevate it to such a degree that it becomes an art form and create something outstanding.

Emma Hack

Emma Hack is one such artist. Hack is famous for her wallpaper work and very appropriately calls herself a “skin illustrator” rather than a body painter (she is also a sculptor, photographer and multimedia artist). She creates the most wonderful and decorative images with her art form incorporating and using the human body in her images.

´Exotic Birds A – 2008´ is from her Wallpaper 2008 collection and is a superb example of Hack´s artistic skills and imminent technique.

'Exotic Birds A' – 2008 - Copyright of Emma Hack.

´Circles and Squares – 2008´ is another great piece of skin illustration from Hack. This piece makes me think of the film Terminator.

'Circles and Squares – 2008' - Copyright of Emma Hack

´Wallpaper 2 – 2005´ makes you wonder if the woman is emerging or vanishing into the wallpaper. Is she the embodiment of the silvery blue world or longing to be part of it?

'Wallpaper 2 – 2005' - Copyright of Emma Hack

But Hack´s work is by no means about superficial decorative beauty. In her collection Fragile Dolls – 2008 Hack uses her artistic talent to comment on the fragility and strength of the feminine condition by showing patchwork dolls caring for and repairing each other. Although seemingly innocent, Fragile Dolls V is interesting because the pieces nevertheless allude to the erotic. Hack plays with our perception of patchwork as a predominantly innocent female activity by showing patchwork dolls repairing each other. Yet there are subtle sub-currents of eroticism at play. Of course dolls are what little girls play with, but the word doll also carry sexual connotations. Hack´s (heart)broken dolls repair each other with needle and thread and in doing so plays out a perfect balance between female fragility and strength through support.

'Fragile Dolls IV – 2008' - Copyright of Emma Hack

'Fragile Dolls V – 2008' - Copyright of Emma Hack

Another poignant issue brought about by Hack is that of humans taking over the natural environment. In ´Evolution Crocodile – 2008´ Hack initiates a discussion about whether we are taking over the natural environment and if Australian animals in that process will begin to camouflage and eventually “disappear” within the manmade environment.

'Evolution Crocodile – 2008' - Copyright of Emma Hack

´Optimism – 2009´ from Panoramic Bodies is another example of Hack´s concern for her native natural Australian environment. In Panoramic Bodies, Hack explores the South Australian landscape, which she sees as fragile and vulnerable to both human action and inaction.

It is well worth going to visit Emma´s site and having a good explore round her various collections. To see more of Emma Hack´s work click here.

Paul Roustan

The second artist’s work I want to share with you is that of American based body painter Paul Roustan who also works with body art. Roustan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002 and has a degree in teaching.

In ´Body Image´ Roustan uses the body of the male model as his canvas. Yet the body of the male model acts as more than just a canvas for the images of female bodies. This work represents an interaction between the real world of the male model and the art painted on his body. For me this work conjures up the thought that the female bodies represent all the girls the man has had an intimate relationship with.

'Body Image' Model: Matus Valent - Copyright of Paul Roustan

In his work ´Abandoned´ Roustan has placed his model in a demolition site amongst the debris of old wood, pitted concrete walls and tin sheets. It creates an interesting tension that Roustan has chosen to use a beautiful young model as his “canvas” for showing decay and disintegration.

Here is what Paul Roustan has to say about his piece:

PR “With my piece, 'abandoned' you will be able to discover a deeper meaning if you really analyze the title, model pose, and the purpose of the body paint design closely. I consider it one of my deepest artworks. But, I don't want to spoil anything for the viewer, because I don't really think it's good for artists to spoon feed the meanings of their works. I am definitely respectful of the viewer's interpretation.

The artist’s respect for the viewer’s interpretation is an ever-interesting subject because it revolves around understanding of the art. Like Roustan, I do not believe in spoon-feeding the viewer but on the other hand so many people do not appreciate art because they lack understanding and seek explanation. As I see it, it is my job as an art consultant to help people appreciate and understand art. I do this by explaining and pointing out some of the meanings and symbolisms that can be found in an artwork. Of course that does not mean that everything should be explained in minute detail but a starting point is important. It is also important to remember that symbols often hold widely different meaning for each individual due to culture, social upbringing and personal experiences. So with that in mind take a closer look at Roustan´s Abandoned below.

'Abandoned' Model: Tiffany - Copyright of Paul Roustan

Jellyfish is another of Roustan´s works. This image is striking in all its simplicity with jellyfish rising towards the surface. Clever use of lighting is partly what makes this a striking image but artistic ingenuity is the basis for this work.

Evokative and sensual paintings from Lauri Blank

´First Kiss of Spring´ - Copyright Lauri Blank

I recently had a discussion with someone who is unfamiliar with erotic art; about the difference between sex and eroticism. The discussion arose because I used the term erotic art to describe the kind of art I deal with and to make a distinction between erotic art and pornography.

Where pornographic films, photos, writing etc. are made with the sole purpose to stimulate sexual excitement this is not the main purpose of erotic art.

Art is first concerned with aesthetics. That is, the use and appearance of line, form, colour, etc. Secondly, art is concerned with using aesthetics to communicate and express ideas that make us think about and often question the world around us.

The erotic is concerned with sexual desire or pleasure and eroticism pertains to the use of sexually arousing or pleasing symbolism in literature and art. Yet when eroticism is incorporated in art it is about more than just desire and pleasure. In erotic art, sexual symbolism and references are used to point out the abundance of connections that exist between eroticism and other aspects of our lives.

´At Last´ - Copyright of Lauri Blank

As a lot of erotic art deals with joy, happiness, love, falling in love, pleasure, giving pleasure and taking pleasure you may end up feeling aroused by looking at it. But there is also the other side of erotic art that deals with jealousy, hurt, broken relations, sorrow, distrust and anger. So erotic art shows both good and bad relations between humans in a huge variety of guises and can have an arousing effect on the viewer.

The interesting thing to note here is that what is sexually arousing or pleasing to one set of eyes is perhaps boring to another set and even shocking or outrageous to a third person. Some people need very explicit imagery to be sexually aroused or feel desire. Others are actually offended by it they prefer much less and would rather detect the outline of a body through clothing than see a naked body.

´Falls embrace´ - Copyright of Lauri Blank.

Yet it is also possible to see a naked body or even two intertwined bodies of the opposite sex without feeling any erotic pleasure. American artist Lauri Blank´s painting ´Falls Embrace´ is a good example of this. Overall Blank´s work is in not sexually explicit in style or form instead it offers evocative renderings of relationships between lovers.

`Promise` - Copyright of Lauri Blank

So are Blanks paintings erotic in nature? To some eyes they will be simply due to the undress of the depicted figures. To me they are more sensual than sexual and I find the nakedness of the figures simply serves as a symbol of the intimate relationship that exists between two lovers. I do not feel erotically aroused looking at Blank´s work but I do feel moved on an emotional level and that in my experience is a rare thing to find in erotic art.

Yet Blank´s work cannot be dismissed as entirely non-erogenous. Blank´s work is important because for some people – and here I think of women in particular – the romantic and emotional connection is a very strong precursor for bringing on sexual excitement. This is due to the fact that many women have a need to feel an emotional connection of romantic character with a partner before they are ready to take the next step where they get physically intimate with their partner. Blank´s work offers women the chance to put a visual reminder right up on their wall that will help reinforce the all-important emotional connection they need to maintain a close erotic relationship with their partner.

´The Kiss´ - Copyright of Lauri Blank

Blank’s work is executed with technical skill and the high quality of her painting is unquestionable. The paintings show romantic subject matters in a style based on truth to nature with complex compositions complimented by evocative colouring.

´Heaven´s Embrace´ - Copyright of Lauri Blank

If you are looking for a piece of art that is sensual, romantic and evocative Blank´s work fulfils the criteria. For more information and to see more of her lovely work click here to go to Lauri Blank´s homepage.

Antonio Biella – S&M cartoon style

´Fetish 1´ - Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

Antonio Biella is an Italian artist who lives and works near Brescia in Northern Italy.

I want to show his work for two reasons. First of all it shows a side of eroticism that many will have heard and know of but only few find themselves actually physically engaged in.

To be honest I very often end up feeling nauseous or upset when I look at art that deals with S&M which is short for Sadomasochism. So secondly, I want to show Biellas work because his pictures leave me with a different sensibility from what I normally experience. They stand out from other works of art that deal with S&M due to the effects Biella use.

Biellas´ pictorial language is a mix of cartoon style, classical landscapes and posh chateau-like interiors and his early interest in comics and later work as an illustrator clearly marks his work.

´Fetish 2 Disegno 5´ - Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

It is partly Biellas play on the real versus the made-up that makes his work interesting. We know that S&M is a sexual game that plays out in reality for a number of people, but it is also a made-up roleplay that can be stopped by a “safe word”.

The tension between the real and the story comes across strongly as Biella depicts humans in a cartoon style and when he places well-known cartoon characters such as Donald and Daisy Duck in the same settings as his humans.

´Fetish 3 Disegno 6´- Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

Biellas use of Donald and Daisy in eroticized situations does unsettle me though. It is of course unsettling because I know these characters so well from my childhood Saturday afternoons when I sat down to watch Disney cartoons. They represent something I adored and loved as a child and something totally non-erotic. So in my world Biella brings on a tension between the childlike versus the adult playing with the notion that all may not be what it seems.

This adult –child theme also plays out in other of his works like fetish 3 disegno 8, with the “little girl” on the swing.

´Fetish 3 Disegno 8´ - Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

Another aspect that makes Biellas work interesting is how the perception of Sadomasochism as a game of inflicting or receiving pain or humiliation is juxtaposed with vulnerability and fragility.

Just take a look at ´Fetish 2 Disegno 7´ below. It is not often that a subject in a game of S&M is depicted in deep contemplation, as he appears to be here.

´Fetish 2 Disegno 7´ - Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

The same could be said for ´Fetish 1 Disegno 7´ where you see the mistress reposing on a couch looking lost in thought. The frame that Biella has created provides the observer with a feeling of sneaking a peak at a scene rarely seen. The woman is not aware of being seen and therefore takes a moment to herself before springing back into action in the role as a mistress.

´Fetish 1 Disegno 6´- Reproduced here by kind permission by Antonio Biella

Finally I think that Biellas `Fetish 1 Disegno 7´ illustrates beautifully how sadomasochism is not only about the hard feelings relating to sadism pain and humiliation.

The rose that decorates the side of the girl´s headmask is a potent symbol of delicate beauty as well as a long standing symbol of the female sex. S&M black leather and lacquer outfits do not usually have flowery designs on them so the fact that Biella has chosen to embellish her mask with a rose design makes the image interesting. On top of that Biella has decorated the border with a flowery Art Nouveau style pattern unifing the masculine and feminine – just look closely at the “heads” in the pattern.

CPH Art Fair

Last weekend I was invited by an artist friend to attend the preview of the Copenhagen Art Fair that she was exhibiting in. The fair which takes place once a year in Copenhagen is a platform for new and upcoming artists who perhaps still do not have a gallery that represents them. That means that you get to see a lot of c… but there is also the occasional little gem to be found if you pay attention and look closely.

Although Erotic Art Lover maintains a primary focus on international artists I was so tickled by some of the artworks I saw that I decided it would be fun to show a selection of them here on the blog.

Brian Saaby

Danish artist Brian Saaby, is a trained illustrator who has studied fine art at the Billedkunstskole in Copenhagen. His picture ´Total Makeover is not in-your-face erotic but instead deals with the eroticism associated with mankind´s view of the perfect female.

To see more of Saabys work go to: www.saabyart.dk

Line Kronvold

Some people who are self-taught are just better than others. Mastery of technical skill is one parameter of success but imagination, curiosity and exploration of own ability are another. Recently a Danish artist, Birgitte Evelyn, was according to Danish newspapers included in the coming 4 vol. – Greatest Erotic Art of Today. Sometimes one wonders why particular artists achieve success based on their work whilst others go unnoticed.

I am not saying that Line Kronvold goes unnoticed and I certainly hope not because she is quite honestly leagues ahead of someone like Evelyn. I´d say, if it is possible for someone like Birgitte Evelyn to achieve accolades, then it should merely be a question of time before a gallery discovers the work of Line Kronvold provided she continues to produce work of the quality shown below.

´Conquest´- Copyright Line Kronvold

´Kiss´- Copyright Line Kronvold

For more of Kronvolds work go to: www.kronvold.com OR facebook.com/line.kronvold

Ina Katarina Strömberg

The next artist I want to show is Ina Katarina Strömberg. She is a sculptress who works and lives in Sweden. Her sculptures of females are voluptuous, sensual and frankly you just want to go right up to them to touch and feel them. She sculpts with both cement, bronze and tin occasionally incorporating paper, paint and lacquer. Ina says that it is a long slow process that rarely leaves her 100% satisfied with the result.

Judge for yourself.

´Mans Torso´ - Copyright Ijah Reveman

For more information on Revemans work go to: www.reveman.com

Claus Brugsen
Another highly accomplished and noteworthy artist is Claus Brugsen who works and uses surrealism as a pictorial language. Brugsen painting is grotesqúe and macabre as seen below but also incredibly beautiful as in his ´Celebration of life´from 2009.

Lene Winther

Perhaps my favourite sculptress is artist Lene Winther. I met her last year at last years show when I myself was in the process of establishing the concept for Erotic Art Lover. We talked a while because my attention had been caught by a little fine ceramic semi-erotic figure (Diva oder Hausfrau, 2009). I told her about my ideas for Erotic Art Lover and she was very supportive and said she felt inspired to investigate the human figure some more in the year to come. Below you can see the sharp but still fun and humourous outcome of that effort.

Jan Schuler

In the show I also came across some of Jan Schuler´s pictures and they just have to go on the blog because they possess such a Danish sense of humour and joir de vivre. Schuler combines the portrayal of a female human being in all her naked splendor with such humour that it leaves everyone who sees them with a huge smile on their face.
