The 15th Annual Sensual &
Erotic Art Exhibition: LAXposed, organized by The XART
Gallery in Los Angeles and sponsored by The Lifestyles Organization,
is a comprehensive survey of a remarkably dynamic and growing
body of work. This survey demonstrates that contemporary artists
living and working in the Southern California area have created
a sense of identity and cohesion. In the past few decades these
artists have emerged as powerful agents of change and a new
social drive for freedom of expression.
“Erotic artwork is the clearest and most accurate mirror
of a given society,” said XArt Gallery Director Luis De
La Cruz. “Critics will of course expend much energy and
effort in arguing the erotic or artistic qualities of the work
in question. What they are in fact asking is how we distinguish
between pornography and art when there is a match of content:
nothing but sex in both. Our argument is that it is due to the
conjuncture of the pornographic with the erotic that the artwork
enjoys such insistent acclaim, and that the arguments for its
aesthetics ‘in spite’ of its pornographic qualities
reveal the fundamental investments of art.”
The Modern Master, R.C. Hörsch is an intensely imaginative
photographer whose often deceptively lush and seductive images
focus on all aspects of human sexuality. It’s the artist‘s
stated position that sexuality is the crucible of humanity and
that it distills all of human experience. He believes that not
only is sex artistically legitimate, but that it is the primary
and most legitimate avenue of artistic exploration.
