Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. Couldn't they have found something more pleasing to the eye to put right out in front of the Museum of Contemporaty Art? Speaking of eyes, what in the heck is sticking out of his??
This bronzed scupture, entitled Process Art (Dead Men Don't Make Scuptures)by LA based artist, Nathan Mabry is a joint purchase by Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and the Hammer Museum, University of California, Los Angeles. It will be on display through May.
In this sculpture, Mabry purchased an unauthorized cast of Rodin’s sculpture, The Thinker, through the Internet, removed its patina, and then repatinated it and overlaid the sculpture with a bronze cast of an altered latex mask. I've been to The Rodin Museum in Paris and have seen The Thinker and prefer it.
