"I use print and digital media to identify citizens eligible for canonization. I use the most common material produced by humans to form representational icons following the path of Piero Manzoni."
- Michael Arata
The latest dispatch from Arataland shows Michael Arata continuing to push buttons and boundaries -- particularly with his new series of "Saint" photos, which depict the artiste's morning bowel movements sculpted to resemble figures and adorned with handmade paper-doll cutout clothes, eyes, etc. I kid you not! It's up at Garboushian Gallery through Saturday October 26 - and kudos to the gallery for mounting such a risque body of work, especially deep in the heart of Beverly. Here's a review in whitehot magazine by Eve Wood.
