Paul McCarthy

I was speaking with Kyle yesterday about Paul McCarthy, he showed me this Video from the Art 21 Website.. It’s well worth a look. McCarthy starts speaking 35 Minutes in.

Below is an overview of his work from the Art21 website:

‘Absent or present, the human figure is a constant element in his work, whether in the form of bodies in action, satirical caricatures, or animistic sculptures; as the residue of a private ritual; or as architectural space left uninhabited for the viewer to occupy. Whether conflating real-world political figures with fantastical characters such as Santa Claus, or treating erotic and abject content with frivolity and charm, McCarthy’s work confuses codes, mixes high and low culture, and provokes an analysis of fundamental beliefs’.
