AN EXHIBITION of latex art has opened with themes exploring sexuality, fetishism and subversion.

Called Sub/Version, it is on at the She Said erotic boutique in Ship Street, Brighton.

Not for the faint-hearted, the pieces cover sexuality, fetishism and subversion, claiming to “subtly seduce with their cheeky humour”.

Brighton-based Michelle Mildenhall, the artist behind the work, said: “I’m ridiculously excited about exhibiting at She Said boutique.

“My latex creations will be a perfect addition to a wonderful array of stylish lingerie, creating a unique exhibition and shopping experience.”

Her pieces take on a minimalist style, using latex to create bold, colourful images.

Shop owner Nic Ramsey said: “You don’t need to be a lover of latex to admire Michelle’s Mildenhall’s work.

“She captures something quite magical and entrancing in her portraits. While many of her images show female subversion, they somehow also exude female empowerment.

“Michelle’s beautiful artwork will be a stunning addition to our boutique.”

Now open to the general public, signed editions and original prints are available.

Back in February, Ms Mildenhall was inundated with tens of thousands of pounds worth of commissions from Fifty Shades of Grey fans.

Her website crashed with couples trying to contact her to create sadomasochism portraits of themselves and their partners.

She told The Argus the film had “awoken peoples’ senses” and introduced previously taboo bedroom activities to the masses.

At the time she said: “I can’t get over the Fifty Shades effect. It has clearly introduced S&M to the mainstream and the global requests for erotic, latex commissions are increasing by the hour ahead of the movie's release.”
