In one week's time the art fairs in Miami will be underway and I'll be celebrating the opening of Chévere at Sirona Fine Art. Chévere is a group show "inspired by the Romance Languages of Latin America... Some of the artists are from Latin America, others not. Therefore some of the artists draw on memory and experience of their own countries and peoples, and others on their encounters with cultures foreign to their own, and others still on imagination and images cobbled together from film and art and literature." Curated by Didi Melendez and Sergio Gomez, Chévere  features work by 40 national and international artists; displaying figurative, narrative, environmental, emotional, street, poetic, and historical-based works. The exhibition will be on view at Sirona Fine Art from December 3 through January 7, 2017 and be accompanied by a catalog and online exhibition. 

For more information on the show please take the time to read Daniel Maidman's insightful review of the show. You can find his article here: Didi Menendez’s ‘Chévere’

Summer is here and with it comes Sidetracked Studio's second annual exhibition of fine-art erotica entitled For Your Eyes Only. Opening Saturday, July 9th, and running through Saturday, August 27th, For Your Eyes Only brings together artists who regularly deal with sexuality in work and those eager to tackle it for the first time. 

According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, the word erotic derives from Greek ertikos — sexual love: it arouses and excites sexual desire or excitement. 
This definition is still accepted today and while erotica is by definition different than pornography it can also include it. The aim of “For Your Eyes Only” is to embrace the myriad of differences in sex, sexuality, and gender by showing a diverse range of work celebrating the humor, desire, lust, pornography, body image, identity, and love that all fall under our definition of erotica.
- Lauren and Rory Coyne, taken from the press release. 

Participating artists include Chris Riccardo, Elizabeth Claire, Harry Sudman, Jason McPhillips, Josh Rogers, Kelis Houlihan, Lauren Levato Coyne, Melissa Lee, Menton3, Michael Popilek, Michele Doll, Nadine Robbins, Reuben Negron, Rory Coyne, Thomas Wharton, Tyler Krasowski, Vanessa Walsh, Vic Selbach, Whistlemag, and Zane York.

I will be including three of my newest drawings from Dirty Dirty Love, an ongoing series that explores sexuality and identity through the real-life experiences of the models depicted. Please click on the images below to views the drawings in detail. For more information about these pieces please feel free to contact Lauren or Rory at SideTracked Studio: info@sidetrackedstudio.com.
