If ever there was a form of art which deserves the term ‘erotic’—it’s the beautifully executed works by Emmegraphia. She does for erotic art what sex does for sex. While it may not be any better than other forms of we’ve posted before, however, this work is appears more interesting and entertaining, that’s for sure. Emmegraphia has a veritable treasure trove of erotica guaranteed to make any viewer hard or wet. And isn’t that what erotic art is all about?
Most erotic work is usually confined largely to drawing. This is partly because it is the most intimate of art forms, and partly because painting and illustration requires much more patience and thought. (Sorry—to all my photographer friends out there!) When I look at erotic art, I see agitated passions. We are free from the conventions of good or bad and right or wrong. It is what it is—and that’s what erotic art is all about—not making a specific statement or trying to prove a point, but rather, allowing the viewer to escape and experience the realm of unlimited sexual expression.
This is why I love this art form so much. Any artist who produces work that provokes a response is doing the art just right. When viewing Emmegraphia’s work, I am struck by a deeper level of intimacy. Almost like we are being invited to a private viewing of her own sexual experiences or willing participant.
Emmegraphia’s style is delicate and understated and has this amazing attention to detail. Executing these drawings in pen and ink, with an occasional assist from a brush, she is able to capture the mood of men and women engaged in the favorite pastime—-sex. Although the frequent motif depicts female masturbation, there are plenty of drawings of lesbian lovers, sexual training sessions, CBT, and other themes which would outrage public decency—just like it is supposed to be!
The magic that lies within most of Emmegraphia’s work is we are left wanting to know about the people involved is each story. The devil’s in details and her work shows off the use of penis pumps, magic wands, vibrators, and dildos allows us to feel a tinge of excitement. More than just fleeting visuals, there is a powerful pull toward the subject’s thoughts and feelings—forcing us to really take it all in and try for ourselves.
