The vindictive intent is equally apparent in this well known weight training picture, the muscular jock is one of Malex's more sensual creations and the situation more obviously erotic with a strong man being forced into demeaning activity. The black arching roof presses down on him too.
His most challenging works are protracted scenes in which young men are cajoled and bullied into allowing themselves to be executed as a punishment for a minor infringement - or even as a sexual experience, giving the artist the opportunity to explore the fear, power play and supposed erotic excitement which accompanies death. He does not spare us the calculating pleasure and excitement of the executioner, which is spelt out in unequivocal terms.
There's a further article on the Sci Fi Art of Malex
The gallery of his work I found in 2013 (see comments) has now been removed
There's presently (2017) a small display at malesmpractices
He can usually be found on sites and groups dealing with more extreme fetish interests
such as nooses and crucifixion but these come and go.
The other place to look for his work is at the GMBA archives
(see sidebar for current GMBA link which changes from time to time)
