Unforgiven | pelle e pietra | due giorni in aprile
2015 November 25: dichiarazione dell'artista
After several years as the introductory artwork for the Allio Art portfolio presence on Model Mayhem, Unforgiven was abruptly deemed inappropriate and censored as an avatar. A statement issued by MM to the artist is quoted, as follows, "This photo is not fit for an avatar. It could be for a number of Reasons: Nudity, too sexy, too long, too much cowbell, etc. Please pick something else."
Considering the digital image file was within techncal constraints for publication and the model was not wearing a cowbell, by inference the image was plausably censored for content based on a recently revised standard highlighting a growing social conservative agenda, or possibly individual personal prejudice, regarding the quantity of skin presented in an image rather than the levels of meaning available to a sophisticated viewer of a refined work of visual art.
