i often blame my eye for male nudes on my copy of the illustrated children’s bible… all those bearded men in swathes of cloth has obviously left a lasting impression on me and so has most of classical literature, religious, pagan or otherwise by portraying events through scantily clothed sculpture. imagine then my delight in the work of jim ferringer; his storytelling through the contemporary male nude and the delightful re-invention of the genre is so wonderfully classic yet so infused with modern subtleties.
