Inspired by the late painter, L S Lowry. A hidden collection of sexually provocative drawings and paintings became known only after his death, this secretive side to the artist was the starting point of the collection.
A man who on the outside appeared to be a reserved, quiet, gentleman kept his perversions concealed for 89 years.
Like Lowry the men have old-fashioned values of masculinity, they are gentlemen on the surface and misfits beneath. Desires seep through the traditional exterior and darker corners of sexuality are subtly hinted at.
Classic menswear on the surface with homoerotic undertones and perverse details.
