Trevor Brown. What can I say about him? Well, I’ll start with: he is pretty much the epitome of the nude/erotic child meets darkness/corruption trend in underground art. He also (I believe) coined the phrase ‘baby art’ or ‘baby doll art’, the modern day equivalent of the big-eyed waif trend of the 70s. In fact, his website is named after it. Brown’s stuff is by turns disturbing, amusing, erotic and colorful, but love it or hate it, it is always interesting. And, I must say, it is largely because of Brown that I began to get really interested in the contemporary love/hate relationship with the erotic child in art, because I think it underscores something incredibly important about the society and culture we live in and where it’s heading. But that’s a topic for another day.

I own a pink terrycloth cover version of Little Miss Sticky Kiss, and a signed, black rubber cover version of Rubber Doll.
Though, really, it’s not my favorite little girl art. For me…bouguereau.

Speaking of Bouguereau, I have some interesting Bouguereau-related stuff coming up next month.
And no, it’s not anything by Bouguereau . . . exactly. Ha ha, now I’ll get you to guessing . . .

Brown also composed some Alice-based images. One I find compelling is Alice lifting a sweating Humpty-Dumpty off the ground.

Yes, I know. I have what began as a monthly feature called Eye on Alice, where I feature Alice images by theme. In the future I will make some posts on the darker side of Alice, for which I’ve been saving the Trevor Brown Alice material.
