Victor Ludorum – 2005

Self portrait by Victor Gordon
Oil on canvas. 76.2 x 50.8 cm

The artist is depicted as an un-heroic lurching one legged Victor of the games. This warrior player with diminutive genitals has an inordinately large double pipe head helmet has a shield with an  embossed female breast and nipple as a symbol of protection and luck. His right hand sports a crude gesticulation. A parody of a physically challenged sports player. Perhaps a prescient incarnation of the Blade Runner!
