The subtle things that slip,
and fade and cease to be,
or suddenly come into being,
between words and lines,
soft sighs or the angry.
They grow and shape,
and merge and form,
and melt and break,
and capture me fully,
only to let me go once again.
And I have never felt this,
any of it,
I've never meant this,
any of it,
And these things,
pick up where we left off,
or stop where we fall,
or hold me captivated still,
and make me walk through my mind,
like I've never been inside it so deeply,
or sharing it so willingly.
I am glad they do,
and feel sometimes strong and capable,
but close as it is,
it feels terrible,
when the size of the words is too small for the task,
and the size of the feeling too big for the heart.
I guess that's how you know,
The poster for my upcoming show, Fuschia Ayling :: Details Unknown.
Fuschia Ayling is a London based fine artist whose practice is primarily concerned with the photographic female nude.
Often working in collaboration with her girlfriend, Louise Raines, she has produced an intimate and eclectic body of work involving projection, body painting, scanography and conceptual erotic portraiture.
Having exhibited at Sh!'s Portobello store early last year, been nominated for Erotic Artist of the Year at The Erotic Awards, produced work for KD Grace and had her photography featured by Belle Jar Magazine, Fuschia Ayling :: Details Unknown will be the artist's first solo exhibition.
Combining the sincere and the reticent, the subtle and the suggestive, the artwork displayed in April at Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium, Hoxton, promises to play with your perceptions of contemporary eroticism.
Private View - 5th of April 2013. Time TBC.
Show runs from the 5th until the 30th of April 2013.
