I love this little gem by Paul McCarthy. If you are not familiar with Paul, he is a contemporary artist whose work is often focused on the darker side of corporate influence on American culture. One might say that a lot of artists do that, and that it is an easy subject to get hot and bothered about, which is true.But that’s true about all art pretty much (love, death, nature,etc). And the real trick is which art captured that concept in the best, simplest, most real way. In a way that just looking at the object is enough to get your own brain to connect and start monologuing.
I mean just look at the pic, it’s Santa bringing you a butt plug for Christmas. You gotta be happy about that, and by gotta be, I mean you gotta be and you don’t have any say about it. So there.
