Tied up : Bondage erotic art of Nancy Peach

Her art shows women tied up in the traditional Kinbaku ( the Japanese art of erotic bondage ) or displays couples involved in bondage play.

Some of her images are rather heavy, like the ones where the women are hanging from the ceiling, others are more about sculpting the flesh through exquisite ropework.

It’s interesting to see how Nancy Peach displays these intense and engaging images of human sexuality without slipping into a dark and sinister atmosphere. Her colorful drawing style and quite open compositions are surely preventing this, but it’s also the way she lets her bound subjects enjoy the kinky play they are involved in.

Artistically her work shows connections to Pop Art, the “linear” approach and vivid colors remind us of Roy Lichtenstein or even Warhol’s famous print series. However what Nancy Peach’s is doing in her paintings is much more tactile and material driven, a style that suits the more sensual nature of her work perfectly.
