HUCK & JIM CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN ART

I present to you the recent art by an artist named Charles Ray who is receiving rave reviews for his Huck and Jim statues based on Mark Twain's Huckleberry Fin.


Now if you find these sculptures unsettling, perhaps even bordering on homoeroticism due to there pose of Huck, art critics have assured me that such reactions are bigoted and merely reflect latent homosexual tendencies and rampant homophobia! The question is why was it necessary to portray them as naked in poses that the average person will surely find suggestive? I happen to view a lot of the artist's works after that and I dare say male nudity on his site certainly out numbers females nudity.
