Rarely will you see an underground artist get such respect. Here, for instance, are his pulp sexploitation paperbacks from the 1960s.

Reviews:

 "If New York collector, writer and fetish historian Richard Pérez Seves had not decided to assemble what he knew about Charles Guyette (along with a substantial selection of images) into this paperback, this influential forerunner of the genre's better known exponents would have continued a lot longer as the great unsung hero of American fetish art."—Tony Mitchell, thefetishistas.com

"If you're at all a fan of fetish art ... then this book will be right up your alley." —kinkweekly.com

"I've often cited John Willie's gals as my biggest fashion inspiration but I'll have to start tipping my hat to Guyette as well."—Dita Von Teese

Unpacking Allen Jones … at the Taschen Gallery

One of coolest things about the Eric Stanton (and Elmer Batters) exhibit happening now in L.A. was the arrival of the classic set of transgressive furniture art produced by U.K. artist, Allen Jones.

Now I’ve seen these sculptures featured in art books, in documentaries, but it was still startling to see them in person, especially as they arrived.

It was no less bizarre seeing the pieces finally assembled, just a day or two before the show. 


This was just before the opening. In the background is a wall of Eric Stanton art.



 Of course some people might ask what connection Allen Jones has to the show. And I can only reply that Allen Jones was certainly influenced by Eric Stanton. Here’s one example of many:


Here’s the earlier variation of original Stanton art:

As they say: imitation is the highest form of flattery:

Allen Jones or Eric Stanton?... You make the call.

I hope you'll check out the gallery in person. It's worth a visit. The Eric Stanton (and Elmer Batters) "Bizarre Life" exhibit will be on display until May 24.
