Lady_Sucu_Bug – Dirty Little Secrets Artist #9

I am pleased to introduce you to our artists for 2018.

Introducing: Lady_Sucu_Bug

20171224_025547Lady_Sucu_Bug has been a member of the local BDSM community in Boise Idaho for 8 years. She loves to be as involved in her community growth as possible. Lady_sucu_Bug is a diverse player who enjoys many forms of kink from Impact, ball busting and breath play to Fire cupping, needles and energy play. Most of Her time in the community is spent teaching classes occasionally at the monthly FemDom Social, leading the local switches discussion group, or volunteering to help with other events in her community. Her goal is to help make BDSM accepted as any other alternative lifestyle choice and to help educate people on how to enjoy this lifestyle in a safe sane and consensual way.
One of the ways she has expressed her kink side has been through her art. Using canvas and acrylic to show life through the eyes of a female identifying Top/ Domme has been one of her greatest joys. She paints for the love of it and tries to bring attention to the sensuality of the human form in its many diverse ways. She found that much of the erotic art she sees focuses on females with smaller frames. As such she tries to focus on all shapes and sizes of the human body including males and those with larger frames.  She says this of her goals, “I hope to help people see beauty and sensuality where they wouldn’t normally look for it. I like unique beauty and I can usually find it if I look for it.”

CRD Larson – Dirty Little Secrets Artist #4

I am pleased to introduce you to our artists for 2018.

Introducing: CRD Larson

Much of his work explores on intimate cropped compositions; bold, bright color blocking; and/or original lingerie and cosplay design. An emerging artist, Larson’s foray into erotica began in earnest when, sometime around 2014, he read Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s 1964 quote regarding pornography, “I’ll know it when I see it.” To Larson, Justice Stewart’s statement (that the boundary between art and obscenity is entirely subjective) served as a launching point for creating artworks which collectively search for that elusive and endlessly ambiguous line between culture and smut.
 
Beginning in November, 2016, Larson sought out venues across the country to showcase his work.  Throughout 2017, his work was shown in cities such as Seattle (twice), Chicago, Oakland, and Los Angeles.  He travelled to and displayed art at events like Sexcon, Nudes A Poppin,’ and Adultcon, and had pieces accepted into juried art exhibitions such as the Seattle Erotic Art Festival (2017), Failed Films (2017), and the Dirty Show (Detroit, 2018).  Encouraged by his experiences in the past year, Larson is applying to even more erotic exhibitions and festivals, and is seeking to have some of paintings exhibited internationally.
In his free time, CRD Larson enjoys scotch, bourbon, and striving towards making professional quality pizza at home.  He is skeptical of social media and the “internet of things,” and is currently shopping around for the finest in tinfoil hats.

BesottedBunny – Dirty Little Secrets Artist #3

I am pleased to introduce you to our artists for 2018.

Introducing: BesottedBunny

BesottedBunnyworksampleI spent my youth studying Japanese history and much of my art reflects the influences of sumi-e (a sort of monochrome watercolor). In particular, sumi-e taught me an appreciation for the expressive beauty of suggestion, lines of ink that are minimalist yet emotive. In my own work this style of painting often lent itself to a kind of raw emotiveness and it quickly became the medium in which I felt most free. Yet at the time it demanded a painstaking degree of control in order to articulate and I learned that I needed to be comfortable shifting between the careful and deliberate and the rough and violent. Truly, I think it was the juxtaposition and harmony of the two extremes that taught me to love this style of painting. Sumi-e also instilled in me the idea that artwork does not exist independently, but that it emerges in the intimate experiences of the individual viewer. For the suggestive brevity invites the viewer to imagine what is hinted at, to engage in a dynamic relationship with the art. Indeed, it is precisely the gaze of the viewer that completes a work.

I have also long had a love for fairy tales, particularly those that combined elements of the macabre with the tender and sweet. The blending of desire and fear, of pain and beauty. I remember in particular being fascinated by details such as the slippers, worn ragged from dancing, in The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I always imagined that it must have been painful to dance so much in one night and such repeated activity to me displayed a fervor, and perhaps even an enjoyment of painfully tender feet. Fairy tales such as that spoke to me on a personal level and have long influenced my artwork. I hope that my work can inspire others to see that kind of beauty in the merging of the extremities of the human experience. In tales of love and pain.

Christopher B. Mooney – Dirty Little Secrets Artist #2

I am pleased to introduce you to our artists for 2018.

Introducing: Christopher B. Mooney

Mooney.Chris.jpg (2)I’m known as professional artist in Portland, OR for the urban landmarks primarily bridges, industrial sites, working heroes, and currently creating figurative and erotic art works.

I received a Bachelor Fine Arts Degree from Parson’s School of Design, NY. Continuing studies in portraiture workshops by Paul Missal and Jerry Sumpter at Pacific Northwest Collage of Art, Portland, OR.

I am creating figurative erotic works that focus on color. Occasionally, the subjects in each of the paintings were posed and lit with red and blue flood lights. It is fascinating how this lighting brings out each subject’s emotional undertones, allowing their natures to rise to the surface.

I like to meet models to sketch and paint, to portray their thoughts and feelings, and to create an erotic atmosphere of people in their environments. I am most interested in boudoir scenes, cuddling scenes, and raw sex scenes. My work is of the ‘old masters’ style. I always look forward to meeting any potential models who aren’t shy about art (or the artist!)

I’ve created erotic works reflecting both kinky and/or fantasy based poses and classical cuddling and kissing scenes. Artists have old habits and I need to get out from under mine. I like to create paintings as a tool to explore my sexual nature – areas of my life that need sexuality without the baggage. For me, art is a real exploration of my inner self. I am a peaceful, loving, passionate man who values compassion and integrity.

I’ve shown erotic art work at: L ALAN ARTS PROJECT @ the CATALYST ART & CULTURAL SPACE; Club Sesso; Club Privata; and Seattle Erotic Art Festival.
