Wacky Wednesday: Enchanted Doll, Dolls by Marina Bychkova

WW-42 Marina-Bychkova-cathedral

Enchanted Doll, doll’s by Marina Bychkova, a Russian-Canadian figurative artist and founder of Enchanted Doll™- a luxury toy label of exquisite, porcelain dolls. are nothing short of what she calls her site. Enchanting, yet another great find from my travels in the Pinterest realm.

Most people know I love dolls, but more in particular dolls produced in the style of what I call, the “Barbie” look. Dolls for the most part considered outrageous and not good role models for little girls. Well folks, these dolls I would say are NOT for little girls or boys, but for the adult minded that take great care and pride in displaying these gems of exquisite artistry. These dolls are enchanting fairy tales brought to life for the serious connoisseur of things beautiful.

These dolls are made with great care from ceramics, bendable, movable dolls crafted with great detail paying strict attention to the colour of the skin and make-up, the accessories used to adorn them, fabrics for the costumes, realistic hair, and facial expressions. Even the genitalia is expertly painted and detailed! Yes she creates dolls that are beautifully nude, and on the opposite side of the spectrum, dressed beyond compare. Fantasy is not something she shies away from.

Wacky Wednesday: Matt Crump’s Rich Pastel Photographic Manipulations

matt_crump_wacky_wednesday_1

Most folks shy away from the use of pastels, especially men, however Matt Crump’s rich pastels photographic manipulations prove otherwise,  proof he has embraced the use of pastels and is producing some incredible works of art that are downright delicious.

Wikipedia describes; 

“Pastels or pastel colours are the family of colours which, when described in the HSV colour space, have high value and low to intermediate saturation. The name comes from pastels, art media characteristic of this colour family. The colours of this family are usually described as “soothing”,”soft”, “near neutral”, “milky”, “washed out”, “desaturated”, and lacking strong chromatic content.

Pink, mauve, and baby blue are typical pastel colours.”

Everyone knows I’m big on pink and pastels, and if you don’t, well now you do! I feel and believe there is so much strength in these types of colours that paired with black or other colours, shades, and tones of opposite value or slight variation on the colour wheel, they are downright sexy and awe inspiring.

Wacky Wednesday: Erotic African Art, A Feast For The Senses, and Sensibilities

wacky_wednesday_41_lady_skollie

In this instalment of Wacky Wednesday, we flip and bring you Wondrous Wednesday and present South African artist,  Lady Skollie. Based out of Johannesburg she creates erotic art that’s a visual feast for the eyes, and well, other parts of the body. Her work is bold, and brash, full of colour and life, a feast for all senses!

Born in 1987 in Cape Town with the birth name, Laura Windvogel, her pseudonym tells the real story of a woman in control of her own. For those that know Afrikaans, Skollie describes a person of colour as a suspicious character, used by the police of the area, so it seems fitting that at she would use it in her own name.

In a recent article for The Huffington Post by Priscilla Frank , she tells of the history of her people, the “Khoisan Tribe, a group that 22,000 years ago was the largest on the planet but now numbers approximately 100,000”. Its a humbling short read that gives great descriptive on her work and choice mediums in which to produce her elaborate work. Work that is without a doubt thought provoking.

Her work is currently on display at the Tyburn Gallery London.

A feast, well worth it.

Wacky Wednesday: Sexy French Farmers Calendar

Sexy French Farmers

Here’s another one for Wacky Wild and Wonderful Wednesdays although day late, well a few months late, so spank me! I don’t care, it’s my website and I’ll do what I want to!

SEXY FRENCH FARMERS!

I love objectifying men! Hell why not? We are always getting it crammed down down our throats how women and all those on the gender spectrum are being objectified, but why not MORE of the men?

To make a point I’m objectified, but I’ve commodified myself and I’m happy with that and do not need someone else telling me how misguided I am for doing so! We hear it all over the place, the fashion world, beauty competitions, body building, athletics, and the list goes You know what I say to that and sorry for being so blunt? FUCK YOU and the cart you rode in on, and take your attacking passive aggressive insecurities else where, they have NO place here.

Well here we have it, some more form the world of the weird, in my case, the down right hilarious. It’s not like I sit around looking for this stuff, but there is some truth to that.

From pencil sharpeners, to rulers, to USB drives, some very crazy fun stuff to make any adult with a penchant for bizarre humour in you. I suggest you have a look at the videos, they tell it all, but just so you understand the context of these videos be sure to watch the first one, it surely sets the tone! LOL

Wacky Wednesday: ERIC STANTON Blast From The Past

eric-stanton-school-mistress

I LOVE art, and I am sure that’s no big surprise to most of you out there, who know me well, and those who don’t. I am very influenced but the provocation, the beauty, the colours, and the strength each artist is trying to convey.

One of my favourite blasts from the past is none other than Eric Stanton, Sept. 30/1926—March 17/1999 considered one oferic-stanton-baroness America’s best bondage and fetish illustrators, cartoonist, and comic-book artist, with the majority of his work depicting female dominance scenarios.

Wacky Wednesday: PLUSH by Marilyn Minter; Some Pubic Consumption

MM pubes

I love presentations of female sexuality, created and presented by women. It has a very distinct and different feel than the art produced by their male counterparts in the art world. Less objectified, if we can say that, although I am not opposed to a some objectification now and then.MarilynMinter_Brooch

Marilyn Minter is just such a woman.

To say her work is unique is an understatement, she has worked with photo, video, and paintings producing work with lush vivid colours evoking emotive desire around the female form and beauty in all it’s shapes and sizes. Her work spans over three decades.

Wacky Wednesday isn’t just about things wacky in the world of sex, sexuality, and sextoys, it’s also about the wild and wonderful in the art world of things sexy and erotic, and have I got one for you!popovy-lingerie-01

The Popovy sisters of Perm, Russia are award winning creators of dolls that would put Barbie and her world of plastic overindulgence to shame. Twin sisters that are fashion designers and artists took up doll making in 2004, part of an interest in human form that grew to include small collections of 10-14 dolls in each. The dolls are painstakingly hand crafted and sold to buyers around the world.

Their attention to detail is astounding, right down to the doll’s facial expressions, features, poses, and even the female genitalia. The women produce one collection a year and revel in the reactions the audience members produce at their gallery openings. (more…)
