The art of Ancient Greece focused unashamedly on the naked body – particularly that of the masculine form. The Greek obsession with physical perfection has an obvious parallel with modern gym culture. For the Greeks the body had almost entirely positive connotations – there was no shame.
In his bold and graphic interpretation of the modern male body, Sam See invites the audience to see the masculine form in all its glory. The warm tones and strong outlines evoke the sexual tensions and energies of both the ordinary male in his unabashed poses and the mythical man in his wild abandon.
The eroticism of the masculine body is brought out by the valorous and raw imaginings of the artist hoping to bring a greater appreciation and admiration of nude male imagery to a conservative communal culture. Some of what is in the exhibition may verge on the risqué, but like the Ancient Greeks we should never be ashamed.
