Most of the media we are exposed to, especially erotica, is created for and by men. Every aspect of the presentation is pushed to its extreme: bodies are pumped up to hyper-ideal proportions, emotions are distilled to their simplest, rawest essence, and the action is non-stop.
Liselotte Eriksson‘s serene, complex characters are a welcome relief from the madness. Fairies abound, and other folkloric fantasies are in plentiful supply, as well as more common natural beauties. From impossibly slender sprites to generously proportioned mermaids, Liselotte embraces a rich diversity of seductive bodies in her dreamy, watercolor images.
There’s a thin thread of goth sensibility in her works, which dominates a small selection of her works quite powerfully. It’s usually limited to black mesh stockings and corsets for the odd buxom fey, or mysteriously bruised and somber slender boys. It seems that Ms. Eriksson’s dreams and nightmares walk hand in hand.
You can find more of Liselotte’s work on her journal.
