"Apostles of Meat," Dario Ortiz, Colombia (b. 1968)
(link)


In Spanish, the title is "Apostilicos de Carne," which could also mean "Apostles of flesh," or "Apostles of the flesh." "Meat" sounds more stark, or like a commodity to be consumed; "carne" has more implication of the sensual and immediate physical reality of flesh. The artist says, "In Antwerp the nicname for Rubens was "The apostle of the flesh". My painting is a personal homage to this great master."

Rubens also masterfully and sympathetically painted aging flesh.
