Sex Without the People

Bettina Hubby

Drawings, blankets, pillows

Ongoing series

Hubby says of the series: "Subjectively, in photography, film, literature, porn, art criticism, etc, its always been more stimulating to me NOT to have things over-explained, overexposed, over-illustrated. To underscore this idea, I sampled from erotica from different era's/cultures and drew the environment of the sex act, emitting that visual information altogether from the finished image. The garments, shoes, hair and bedding, etc around the act eludes to what's happening—the viewer fills in the blanks. 

Further investigation on the theme has been to transpose the images onto a series of fleece blankets and pillows to bring them back into the context of the bedroom. They also reveal the negative space to underscore that the viewer is the uninvited voyeur, of surveillance, privacy interrupted and secrecy revealed."
