Robert Longo and Ryder Richards

Both of these artists' works touch on ideas of masculinity. Ryder Richards' work connects men with their guns while Robert Longo's famous Men in the Cities connects men with capitalism--"suits." Read an interview by Ryder Richards HERE from homo-neurotic in which he discusses manhood 'n Texas. Robert Longo was a music video director among other things, directing the video below for New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle." Check out the great dialogue at about 2:42--"I refuse to come back as a bug or as a rabbit!" His Men also make an appearance as they flail about in the air against a blue sky.
