I have been making portraits using scanners for the last four years. Whether it be the marks of a bull whipping that look like the ‘delicate grass’ from a Monet painting, or big, tender bruises reminiscent of an abstract expressionist painting, I am interested in the landscape that BDSM play leaves behind on the body. The scanner captures detail down to the pore of everything that comes into contact with the glass, the act of scanning becomes a part of the play and a dance. I love to incorporate artistic documentation (whether with a scanner, a camera or a stenographer!) into my play.
Philosopher and writer George Satayana said, “Love is a physical drive with an ideal intent.” It is in that spirit that we have embarked to create a new kind of play party here in New York. While we enjoy the raucous bar night / play party just as much as the rest of you, we are looking to build something else here; something more intentional and intimate…Blunt and Couple Present is a monthly get together of like-minded people who are excited about exploring their sexualities on an artistic, physical and spiritual level. By starting off the night with a merging of creative and sensual foreplay, we intend to create an environment more suited towards the spirit of our event.
