Art is so subjective, but there's no doubt what emotions and feelings erotic artist and photographer Robert Babylon is trying to stir within you in his exhibition Far From Grey, which is currently open for free at the Harmony Charing Cross Road store.
The exhibition title was inspired by Robert's bright, fetish fantasy photographs and UV neon portraits, which often uses female bodies dripped in fluorescent paint to create attractive, eye catching images. Both his award-winning neon and fetish photography demonstrates that there are a lot more shades to fantasy than simply grey.
A member of the Guild of Erotic Artists, Robert finds that his work is often a big hit with women searching for something sensual, yet tasteful, to display in their homes: “The abstract nature of these images enhanced by the blue skin tones allows the viewer to concentrate on the flowing curves of the human body rather than be distracted by the image reminding them of a particular person. This anonymity attracts a majority female audience that amounts to over half of my customers being women. They want sexy, but not lurid, erotica for their homes, because after all, how many women want to see the face of another woman looking down at them from the wall?” explains Robert.
Far From Grey is open now, until the end of June, in Harmony Store, 99a Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0DP. There's no need to book, simply pop in and have a browse the next time you're in Central London. This is a great chance to explore and engage with erotic art if you've never done so before.
Canvases and prints will be available to order and buy throughout the exhibition, with prices starting from £25. Affordable greetings cards of Robert's work will also be on sale for £4, which make a perfect gift.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
