Purely thanks to the tremendous bull testicles of "Friend of Colby" and fellow artist Wolfgang Fletcher, who had the chutzpah to ask a gallery owner if I could strip down to take a photo in front of this piece by artist Leo Villareal, were we able to capture the portrait above, "Colby as Christ, giving the Byzantine sign of benediction".
You may know Villareal best for his tunnel of LED lights, the "Multiverse" at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. To see more of his work, check out his website HERE.
