Now that Friday 13th is over it's time to get down to the real grit, a serious controversial topic: Nudity in Art.
Whoever was painting the little loin clothes on Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel, knows what I mean. They may be dead but hopefully well clothed and hopefully in Heaven. Yes, God does not condem the narrow minded. I'm a Christian, do I think the human body is ...well...blush...beautiful? Is a flower beautiful, or a sunset, or a tree?
We can blame all the morality on the Eve and the Serpent or Pandora. Would Michelangelo would be crucified for painting all that filth in a church today? Move over Jesus, make room , make room. The great American artist Maxfield Parrish, who was the darling of high society in the 1920s, would certainly be labeled a pedophile in 2009 because there is no innocence left today. Move over Max, make room, make room. There's always a martyr nearby and anyone can be a target, how 'bout you! Move over, make room, make room. There's no beauty left in this cynical world only #$%^&^&* ugliness.
Yes, there is some nudity on my art web-site. Move over, make room, make room. Hopefully I'll only be judged by God and not by man.
