I always write from the heart and with emotion…I feel compelled today to write about a trend I see where erotic art that depicts the male body is called gay art. Of course, if it depicts intimacy between same sex then it is, and that is correct. But the male body is beautiful all on its own and, as a female I enjoy much of the art that is “gay”. I get a little frustrated by the use of the female form in erotic art as it appears so much. She is the object to be looked at and the male is but a passing figure with little relevance in the painting. I may start to address this with some paintings where the opposite is true, where the female is merely there and not centre stage, and the viewer is drawn to the male.
Let the male be the enticer and the female, a mere circumstance?
