This intimate, elegant hardcover features contemporary oil paintings of explicit, celebratory, whimsical and intense sexual subject matter, private images both tantalizing and surprising. Non-exploitative, mature and playful, BenAmots' art is a fearless celebration of the physical.
The introduction features an eclectic sampling of other artworks by Laura BenAmots. "Through The Peep Hole," is a section comprised of nine miniature images of up-close-and-personal body parts. "Catching Breath" features a full range of medium- and large-scale flesh-toned canvases rendering highly private sexual interludes. Also includes two facsimiles of hand-written and typed erotic poems by the painter, an artist bio and interview.
