Re: Cultural Gothic- Paul McCarthy

I think that that Mccarthy sculpture was plenty odd enough without the motorized bestiality aspect. He should have restrained himself. His desire to taboo the message simply overtook the art. Ruined a fair amount of intelligent and unique handiwork - too often artists who are supposedly participating at very high levels prove themselve quite immature.

And I'm not making a sweeping statement about this mans career - simply commenting on this one piece. I am not inspired this early in the morning to google-cram more of his work into my brain...perhaps later.
