I hope this magazine goes on forever. It's not like any other art magazine. Many thanks to the creators for offering artists a voice.
The paintings of Gerard Huber have been a part of Art of Man since its inception, but in this issue focus is brought to the inordinately fine charcoal drawings of the male figure that have been featured in university galleries and museums. This is an exceptionally fine interview with Huber, explaining his approach to that special and most difficult medium in art - drawing.
The other artist in this issue are form many countries - Stathis Palladino is form Southern Italy and paints the figure with classical references; James Mortimer is form England and his art touches the realm of surrealism and fantasy; Martin-Jan van Santen is a Dutch painter whose paintings have an element of the mystery of abstraction; Tom Muscatello is from New Jersey and John S. Tarantola is from Colorado. The ages very as do the styles and each artist's work is accompanied by a fine interview.
Capping the issue is the ever present art history article - the anchor for all the contemporary work. The artist under scrutiny in this issue is the brilliant French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux and the article is accompanied by a rich selection of both the artist's best known and rarely seen works. It is a fitting platform for opening vistas for the contemporary art contained in this issue. Grady Harp, August 14
Because this book is available in brick and mortar bookstores and museums as well as online in various venues, the presence of a hardcover version adds credence to the success of the venture of publishing an art magazine devoted to artists, both male and female, whose repertoire of work includes celebration of the male figure. Hopefully enough new viewers will see this handsome book and move to the subscriber status of the magazine. THE ART OF MAN has proven to be a popular and very viable platform for the finest in art of the male form.
