“Being immortalized in an artwork is the ultimate love letter.”
“There’s just something sexy and fascinating about someone whose daily routine deals with the sublime, and who aims to create something out of this world. It’s like wanting to fuck God, kinda.”
“One minute the artist appears so amazing and confident that you can’t help but open your legs, and the next minute they suddenly plummet and become vulnerable and insecure, and need you to open your arms to comfort them.”
– Karley Sciortino: Why we like having sex with artists (Vulture, Dec 19, 2014)
ORDERS: This weekend, flirt with an artist. You don’t need to end in bed with him or her. Just, you know, taste God. In their work, in their eyes.
