Re: Public displaying of Nude Art
I’ve always enjoyed nudity, have nude work in several genres and am attracted to it in others homes, galleries and museums. I cried upon seeing Michael Angelo’s David in person, and am repeatedly deeply moved by Marc Quinn’s statues of Allison (there’s a fantastic photo layout in B&W out there of her too) The human body remains one of the most interesting and dynamic subjects.
However everything on Koons page was unpleasant on some level aesthetically to me, from the stilted, posed “acting” positions and mockup overly sentimental backgrounds and clothing, to the sappy dogs and those commercial flowers. It appears driven by marketing, self aggrandizing and sensationalism…but pornography is a good enough excuse to not show the children. *chuckles*
