The painting above was created by artist Enric Sant. I like it. I don’t love it as passionately as most of the pieces I have on display in my home. (There is very little unoccupied space on any of my apartment walls.) Still, if I had the space and had this painting, I’d display it. I like the thought of art depicting people sharing sex (or even sexy things, like spanking).
How about you? Do you like it? Do you like it enough to hang in your home?
To digress deeper into the topic for a moment, let me illustrate my point. Are you familiar with the art work entitled “American Gothic” by Grant Wood? (It features a farmer carrying a pitchfork and his dour wife in front of their farmhouse.) I have a take-off of this work on display. My piece shows the farmer smiling as he brandishes a riding crop, and his wife, now dressed in a corset and slave-collar is looking on with a glint in her eye. I also have two photographic works that I really love. I’m embarrassed to confess that I’ve forgotten the name of this artist, it’s a woman with a name something like Arnas… Anyway, in one shot there is a naked woman bending over, showing her naked privates. She is masturbating her rectum with a bottle of Tabasco sauce. In another shot, a similarly nude woman is bending over holding a kid’s bottle of bubbles and a small bubble wand in each hand. She’s holding the wand to her anus, and the background of the photograph is filled with floating bubbles. I LOVE these art works! They speak to me, they say a lot about me. If you’re curious, I have these three pieces hung in my walk-in closet. It seems appropriate that these depictions of kink are closeted, as am I to the general public.
What do you think? Do you share my taste? Think I’m an unredeemable pervert?
