EROTIC art will be on display in Fenland this month.

The adults-only show offers the chance to see sensual and fetish art portrayed through illustrations and life casting.

It will feature a body of work created over 10 years by 46-year-old Chatteris-based artist Richard Savage, who has collaborated with New Zealand-born Kelly Boucher.

Mr Savage is a member of The Guild of Erotic Artists, has been a figurative artist for 20 years and has never shied away from provocative topics that include: fetish, gothic, gay, lesbian, fantasy and the world of BDSM.

Mr Savage said: "Erotic art is a very interesting form of art to be in. It explores ways in which people interact with each other and a secretive side to people's lives. It's fun making people look attractive.

"I held an erotic art show at March Town Hall a few years ago and it was seen to be a bit controversial at the time. Apart from that I don't recall any sort exhibition like this taking part in this neck of the woods.

"Goodness knows what sort of reaction it will get but I think there are more people out there who would be interested in this kind of art work than would admit to in public.

"I'm not trying to shock anyone. I don't think my work is offensive and I hope people will be open-minded and enjoy it."

# The exhibition will be at Savage Studios, South Park Street, Chatteris..

There will be cheese and wine at the opening, which will be from 5-9pm on October 24 and the exhibition will be open from 11am-3pm on October 25 and 11am-3pm on October 26.
