Pornography, erotica and ribaldry are largely ignored within the art community. According to Barnes, the vulgar, sleazy, obscene and the often poorly stylized images are in desperate need of rejuvenation. Barnes has reinvented all that is considered x-rated using vintage motifs, sartorial splendour and a dash of the whimsical. He has created a collection of work that will help to corrupt those minds that are open to his lewd persuasion. Larry Flynt would be proud.
