My Eric Stanton Timeline currently at the Taschen Gallery in Los Angeles.

Eric Stanton Timeline By Richard Perez at the Taschen Gallery

 This is a massive display on the back wall of the gallery to give people an overview of Eric Stanton's life. As archivist, bizarre culture historian, and co-curator of the show, I contributed the Eric Stanton portion while Dian Hanson did the Elmer Batters' half. At first I was uploading image scans and correcting the timeline via the Internet (since I live in New York City), but when it was obvious that Dian Hanson was still having a lot of trouble, Benedikt Taschen flew me out to Los Angeles. (Twice actually.)

In the end, I think it came out nicely. And we can see the arc of his life.

That first photo of Eric Stanton as a sailor was provided courtesy of Amber Stanton (Eric's daughter), who by the way is also a uniquely talented artist. You can see her work here: http://www.amberstanton.com

"Eric Stanton Exhibit" by Richard Perez at the Taschen Gallery

I hope you'll check out the show in person. It's worth a visit. The Eric Stanton (and Elmer Batters) "Bizarre Life" exhibit, featuring subversive, sexually-oriented art you'll never see in a conventional gallery or museum is on display until May 24.

Charles Guyette: Godfather of American Fetish Art



*     *     *     *     *     *     *


Charles Guyette reviewed by Tony Mitchell, The Fetishistas

"Charles Guyette is a name that you might have seen mentioned in passing in books about the ‘golden age’ of American fetish imagery — the period from the mid 1930s to early ’60s associated with the publishing work of Irving Klaw, John Willie, Robert Harrison and Leonard Burtman among others. But the chances are, these were indeed only passing mentions...."
