Russel Gordon’s St Sebastian Mannequin is the original don’t ask don’t tell military man. An officer in the Roman Army Sebastian was found to be a practising Christian and was ordered executed by arrows…After his execution proved less than fatal, was healed back to health by St. Irene who rescued him by torch light from a cave and stitched him back together. He is a patron saint for soldiers, policemen, athletes & gay men. All of Gordon’s work like any competent renaissance era painter is filled with symbolism & irony. He is having a wonderful one man show this Friday at M Gallery and bringing a number of new works. I can’t wait. Maggie
