i really can’t say enough about these two. they are hands down my favorite couple on the planet. all we do when we’re together is eat talk about art and sex and laugh. it just doesn’t get better than this. i’ve mentioned it in past post, they are not only partners in life but in art as well. here is their site ConstanceandEric.com. here they are after a night of openings in chelsea…
here is an image Constance sent me of their baby after her 2nd ultrasound. i like baby’s style.
a couple of years ago i was dating David. his birthday came around. i was on the J to his apartment, thinking about a good gift. all of a sudden an image of a lit candle shoved up my vagina came to me. i decided to go ahead and create this image then i decided to turn it into a greeting card. i made about 20 different explicit greeting cards over that summer. i decided to call the greeting cards Nasty By Design. i went around to different shops pitching them. nobody bit. the last place i went to was Spoonbill and Sugartown Booksellers on bedford ave. they decided to take two of the less risque ones on consignment. they sold out. i now have 5 cards for sale at the store. here is an image of the best selling one, blank on the inside. David,thank you for the inspiration.
Spoonbill sells great art books, you should go.
Oh, another place you should go to is to the NY Studio Gallery on january 14th. some of my dearest friends Constance and Eric and Marne Lucas
are a part of the exhibition Hotter Than July. i’ll be at the opening, will you? btw, constance and eric have started blogging pretty hardcore — pun the fuck intended. it is fun, refreshing, sexy. god i just adore these guys to pieces. check it out.
i remember admiring a photo that Steven Diet Goedde made of Marne years ago. Marne was a fetish model, under the name Gina Velour, for years. she is a fabulous artist/photographer and just a really cool person. we got together the other day, i posed for her. it was really fun and sexy being in front of her camera. i can’t wait to get her in front of mine. meow meow marne…
i was so happy when i found out that she and two very dear friends of mine,
constance and eric are in the group show Hotter Than July: A Sexploration (curated by Savannah Spririt) which opens in nyc jan 13th. i can go on and on about eric and con, and will in another post. marne will be showing her infra-red erotic short film The Operation (co-created w/ Jacob Pander). con and eric will be showing their collaborative images. i can’t fucking wait.
