The ‘Rona isn’t done with us yet. Not by a long shot. So, our friends at Doable Guys have moved the art show originally planned for this summer online. I’m thrilled and honored to be part of the show, selling no less than six original paintings.

We live in a society that teaches us to compartmentalize the erotic. Pack that sh*t up, lock it away and only let it out when it’s “safe”. While not all of our challenges as a society stem from this dubious advice, it’s fair to say we’d be a lot better off with an attitude of celebration instead of this faux-celebacy performative BS we’ve got now.

And here’s a whole art show celebrating the erotic joy of the male form and the artists who play with it. 

From The Beloved and God Series
Some ancient myths, some Tom of Finland, mix it all together for this slightly surreal confection that explores the intersections of love, worship, and power.

From the Handful Series
In our erotic moments, just as in all of our interactions, we speak a lot with our hands. Here we have a bit more abstract exploration of the nonverbal messages we send each other.

Shyly courting the limelight, composer and librettist Edward Ficklin has found his way in the new music world -- and discovered his voice as an artist -- working with collectives like the New York Composers Circle and the South Oxford Six. Trained in classical composition and English literature at the University of Denver, he finds inspiration in the small details and sounds of everyday life. Passionately pursuing operatic ambitions, he has realized his works in a number of unusual venues, like a store window near Grand Central Station, a disused (and abused) bank lobby near the World Trade Center, lofts,a former movie theater, and a number of churches of various denominations. Edward hopes someday to find his way to the Metropolitan Opera. In 2003 he formed the Voyeur Theater Ensemble, an ensemble dedicated to his work for the stage (any stage, that is) and is actively involved in the composers collective The South Oxford Six. Edward also serves on the Artists Advisory Council of Fractured Atlas, a national service organization for independent and self-producing artists.
