Discobolus (mini sets of 3) by Jack Ravi

  • Discobolus (mini-sets of 3) by Jack Ravi


    The Discobolus is a series of original collages on found clay pigeons.


    Something about the shape and the action of throwing a disc reminded Jack of idealistic images of Olympian athletes in Ancient Greece. So, he incorporated photos of perfectly sculpted bodies, cut-outs from queer magazines from the late ‘50s, disguised in those days as “physique” magazines.


    The title of this ongoing series is an homage to the proportion, balance and harmony of Myron’s Classical Greek statue.


    These come with black clip hangers so can be displayed on a wall or flat/ stacked on a shelf.
