I’M SORRY, ED, but both of those sculptures are aesthetically awful. The older one is actually worse because Rupert Schmid only intended to say “beauty” and failed. Viola Frey was doing comical commentary and (arguably) succeeded. I’m sure Frey would have found it funny that you and PJMedia deplore her work, but Schmid would have felt wounded to have been thought a tasteless hack.
