Roberto Ferri's art hits all the pleasure centers in my mind.

I love the muscular bodies...the portrayal of female power...the sado-masochistic overtones...and the religious themes.

I can't remember who sent me the link but thank you.

Amazing---all the classical techniques, compositions, and lighting but with arresting and fascinating deviations from centuries of the Catholic Church's stranglehold on European art. It's a good thing that Ferri is painting now, rather than then; the Inquisition would certainly have got hold of him, and they wouldn't have been kind.
