HELL, YES!

Excess is all..... Paul McCarthy's Mechanical Pig, 2003

Do you see how blissed out that pig is???? That's me right now! Blissed out with excitement that our local PBS affiliate KVIE is now carrying Art 21!! Can I get a HELL, YES!??!

Last year when I worked on the auction I was a broken record of Art 21, Art 21, Art 21, Art 21. My bleating and nagging can now come to an end and I shall lay back, ecstatically happy about rad viewing. Best of all the upcoming episode features Yinka Shonibare, Cindy Sherman, and PAUL MCCARTHY!

GODDAMN!

Do we seek out excess and extremes in order to see ourselves more clearly? Transformation explores these questions in the work of the artists Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, and Paul McCarthy.

In conclusion... check this out...

the fact that it's mechanical makes it creepy. I guess I am just afraid of robots.
