Andrew Ogus Drawings
When I was a child my family visited Pompeii, where the adult men were shown certain mysterious murals while the women and children waited in the ancient street. My circumspect father never told me what he saw.My life long fascination with story has led me to retell the mythologies of the ancient Greeks and Romans in gay male terms. For us, their world is mostly lost, broken statues and mosaics, faded murals, scraps of text. For them it was complete and modern.I began this work several years ago to celebrate the iconic beauty of men. Now I realize it is also an attempt not only to capture those unseen Pompeiian paintings, but to record our own modern lives.And I am always hoping to make something beautiful.
