Future Artifacts

“In the final days of the first reign of Emperor Ascroftus III,
it was formally decreed that all statuary art found to be of “questionable moral”
and “irreverent content” be banned, dismantled by torch and buried away from public view.

These are the “Future Artifacts” from a recent discovery of one of the
rich future ancient art burial grounds.”

You may not know Dennis Covey’s name (although there’s a good chance you do), but you have most likely seen some of his expansive commercial work which includes years of work for men’s fashion and underwear catalogs, fitness certifying organizations and publications. As a gay man, I give a lot of thanks to Dennis and his photographic work for the International Male catalogs in the 80s – They accompanied me through puberty and I’m sure in some way helped me in coming out in my teens.

Beyond his commercial work, Dennis is an accomplished artist studying in many mediums, but his latest and most interesting (in my opinion) are his life casts.

“The artifact style casts usually have no chin, face or arms with raw edges and resemble something that might have been excavated from an ancient archiological site.”

They are life size, simply because they are actual cast from real people and they are nothing short of stunning. They are available for purchase or private commissions are also available..
