They say that sex sells.  I am not sure who “they” are, but I can tell you that when it comes to my art it simply isn’t true.  I mostly sell flowers, landscapes and animals.  My sexy and/or edgy pieces take second seat.  People rarely comment on them and even more rarely buy.  I know it isn’t that the work is bad.  It has to do with people’s insecurities and their fear of judgement.  Not many art collectors are brave enough to have nudes displayed as focal points in their homes.  There might be the charcoal drawing in the bedroom or maybe an abstract in a guest bathroom, but nothing that “shows” anything. Or even worse suggests anything sexual.  As a society we are still very prudish when it comes to art which is odd since T.V. and media are filled with raunchy nasty nude imagery.  Art is art.  Be proud and display it!
