DesireThis October sees the launch of a major new art show from three excting artist, exploring the sexual, the sensual, and the sinister. Encompassing the macabre, the kinky and intensley sexual, each artist explores the erotic realms, each in their inimitable style.

Celebrated designer Jess Eaton has saturated the national press with her subversive and potently erotic work which empowers women and transcends both art and fashion.   After wowing the world as the woman behind ‘Roadkill Couture’ – which has garnered a huge following from fashion titans including Lady Gaga and Kate Moss- Eaton’s focusing her attention on the passion at the heart of her work and life -sex.  The Brighton based artist’s work echoes her own inimitable thirst for life, love and lust.

COITUS celebrates her wild and imaginative approach to sex, all given her trademark ‘dark edge’. ”

Andrew Shoben is the founder of greyworld, a world renowned artists’ collective who create public art. Whilst greyworld’s work has increased in size and scope over the last 20 years, Andrew’s personal work has begun to focus on the private, the personal, and the hidden.  Whilst both bodies of work are playful, Andrew’s personal work explores more sensual themes, and seeks to allow interaction on a smaller, more intimate scale. Working in a variety of media, including neon, large format prints, and new mechanical works, the results are unusual, sensual art that hold the gaze.

Michelle Mildenhall is a UK artist with a distinctive style. She creates provocative art that combines stylised imagery with her passion for latex in a new and innovative way. Michelle’s work is highly recognisable, as each artwork is meticulously constructed using sheet latex, a material that she works with in order to create her compelling art.

Michelle seduces the viewer into a world of disconcerting beauty and mystique. By using popular but somewhat taboo themes of sexuality, fetishism and subversion, she creates work in which a fascination with the subject evolves and an underlying element of sexual association develops purely because of the medium in which she creates her art.  Michelle’s work has been exhibited throughout the UK and in America and has appeared in international publications. Her artwork is being featured in a BBC interior design program this Autumn.

The show runs from October 13th – October 19th, 10am – 6pm every day at at the
Embassy Tea Gallery, 195-205 Union Street, London SE1 0LN The Private View is Thursday 16th Oct, 6-9 pm
