DA BOMB: AURA R.


A hearty porn star shout-out goes to Berlin-based artist Aura Rosenberg who, like the prodigal son of biblical lore, has finally returned to a subject near-and-dear to her heart (and every BSD reader's pants) PORN!  Specifically, source material from the "Golden Age" of 1970s costume-drama-obsessed skin flicks-- rich in big tits and raunchy pre-AIDS cum-guzzling aplomb.  Aura began working with the subject nearly 25 years ago but took a break to explore an even more controversial subject-- a frequent and potential outcome of sex: children.  Outside her work with children, one of Aura's most famous series to date documents the orgasm expression of art world celebrities, though she began her exploration on the topic of porn with a series of paintings on rocks, "The Dialectical Porn Rock".  

To see Aura's latest work check out her most recent show at the Martos Gallery in Chelsea, on view until March 30.  

To learn more about Aura and her return to porn, read a discussion with her husband John Miller on Bomb Magazine's BOMBLOG.
