Art Description

Photography: Color, C-type, Digital, Manipulated, Tempera on Paper, Bronze, Carbon Fibre, Glass, Marble.

The work presents a digital collage combining Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement with a series of over 350 pictures of the artist’s body. Every character, male or female, that was painted by Michelangelo is now replaced by one naked man, referencing both the nudity that was present in the original version of Michelangelo’s masterpiece as well as offering an overt reference to the rumours surrounding Michelangelo’s own sexuality.

As Michelangelo is known for his studies of anatomy, this work provides a contemporary take on this subject. Aside from the general anatomical exploration of the human form, there is also a personal search of the artist’s awareness of his own body’s transformation over the course of a matter of years - the photos in the work were taken over a period of more than a decade.
