A new Film by Eric Minh Swenson
12 Inches of Sin is an annual juried exhibition of contemporary erotica that presents a serious categories study of practice in the field, and brings to the forefront new and imaginative formats for the exploration of sex, gender, fantasy, and love.
The show has a twist; every piece submitted for consideration must be one foot square or less. This means careful consideration by each artist, the compression of space means that the product requires a certain level of discipline and rigor, and in many cases a close examination of the artist’s aesthetic as he or she makes Lilliputian that which looms large in the imagination. This tininess is also a clever nod to the secretive status of erotica, and functions beautifully as a metaphor for the keyhole voyeur.
Visual artist Marshall Bradford’s delighful art is part of our exhibition Le Salon Des Refusés Du Péché. He has lived and worked in Las Vegas for the past five years. His mission along with No Bullshit Studios is to produce the best work with no games, no ego, and no attitudes. Everything should be just about the work itself and creating photo that move the viewers’ emotions.
Marshall’s photography combined with Shibari is not only sensual but an eye opener to the ancient art of rope bondage. This artist talk is your opportunity to get to know more about Bradford and both his photography and his love for Shibari, his inspiration and so much more.
