"

my body is a temple
but it is a temple
of dark crevices beneath my skin
and the creatures that thrive there
of life

life is the dark space between my stomach and liver
it is the creaking of my tendons
it is the aching pressure between calcium columns
it is the dark dirt under my fingernails

life is the carcass between my teeth
it is the stars spewing their guts into emptiness
it is the virus that lives in my chest
it is the maggots that shall grow in my corpse

there is no sin in this religion
there is nothing unwelcome in this temple
death and life walk hand in hand
and i am loved well by both

My take on Achilles, since I continue to be tearfully in love with reinterpretations of Achilles, and wanted to do a Rule63/SpectrumSlide
If you’re wondering about the leg: one of my other Achilleses had an amputated arm and while that wouldn’t work for an ancient Achilles, I couldn’t bear to do away with it completely. Also, I appreciate the irony. The prosthetic clearly is not period accurate.
If you’re wondering about the nudity: I suck at drawing clothes and am good at drawing torsos.
Based on this still from Troy

Torkil Gudnason: Body Vase

Agency Lookbooks | A. Galerie, Paris

Torkil Gudnason’s Body Vase juxtaposes flora with human curves, eroticism with innocence, and nature with it’s inherent beauty and allure. There is a quality of mysterious fascination within these images - they are charged with a charm that accompanies temptation. The soft, intimate lighting comes from shooting exclusively with daylight – and allows the viewer into a small, private world consisting only of photographer and model.

His images have drama and a sculptural quality that brings to mind the heft and simplicity of Henry Moore or Modigliani - “I  like distortion as a sculptural effect,” he says. 

Shot over a period of nine months, Body Vase brings together two passions for Torkil – flowers and the human form. It is remarkable that these images were created in-camera, with very little retouching – lending the increased power of authenticity to these images, and leaving us wondering at the beauty that exists within this world.

Kevin Francis Gray Art

Kevin Francis Gray’s 2005 body of work was so hugely appealing: London youths—the freaks and oft-romanticized street tribes of the East End—were cast as towering Rodin-like figures. These figures wore jeans, tanks, and sneakers; their faces obscured by hoodies and veils. It was urban ghetto-gothic street style immortalized in ancient materials like bronze, marble, and black resin. A once fleeting feeling was rendered permanent, mythical almost.
