About this title


This intimate and elegant hardcover art book features contemporary oil paintings of explicit, celebratory, whimsical and intense sexual subject matter by Laura BenAmots. The raw private images are both tantalizing and surprising. The work is non-exploitative mature and playful. Clearly these paintings reflect a fearless celebration of the physical. Eros On Canvas has a clean calm design that creates a type of purity or visual "white noise" in which to view the unambiguous representations float. The title sheet is followed by a table of contents, words (artist's bio and interview), forward by Noel Black and an introduction. The paintings are separated into 3 groups: first is a brief introduction with an eclectic sampling of other artworks by Laura BenAmots concluding with three paintings titled the muses from the portrait series of beautiful men that led to Eros On Canvas; next is a chapter titled Through The Peep Hole comprised of nine miniature images of up-close-and-personal body parts; finally, the body of the book is titled Catching Breath and features a full range of medium and large scale flesh-toned canvases rendering highly private sexual interludes. The book concludes with 2 facsimiles of hand written and typed erotic poems by the painter.
