Artwork for Viewing and Sale

Artwork: Minoru

With American soldiers at war in foreign lands, and with gays fighting an ideological war for full civil rights on the home front, "MEN AT ARMS" examines the trappings of manhood, machismo and militarism in a survey of artists that includes the vintage erotica of Tom of Finland and his contemporary Etienne, the graphic fantasies of the Hun, the whimsical beefcake of Luger (pseudonym of photographer Jim French) the wicked fantasies of Michael Kirwan, the well-equipped "foot-soldiers" of fetishist Palanca, flesh pushed to its limits by Manflesh, the renderings of men in uniform by Patrick Lee, plus works by artists Minoru, Skipper, Teddy of Paris, photographer Kim Hanson and a special showing of Xavier Gicguel's work.

Take an opportunity to see this exceptional show before it closes!

Website Update! René Capone: Paintings and drawings which primarily use the male figure combed with abstract elements, ideas from mythology, fables and stories to create works with many interpretations.  


Website Update! JD Dragan’s male nude photographs present non-objectified imagery depicting all men, but particularly men of African origin. The power of nudity, scenes of man and nature, or symbols depicting social bigotry, keep the man in focus.
