Catambulare 1993–1996

Three graces oil by Victor Gordon
Oil on canvas. 91 x 106 cm

An appreciation of the female human form is most often interpreted as being created and provided for the pleasure and desire of the male gaze. Heterosexual men do often chauvinistically refer to themselves as being an arse man, a tit man or are just simply biologically cunt-struck. Sadly these extreme sexist attitudes abound and victims of a cruel fashion industry comply. These three sites/arenas of psycho-sexual attraction are highlighted in my re-interpretation of the traditional three graces, Euphosyne, Aglaea and Thalia- who were said to represent beauty, charm and joy.
