Another Paris Hilton Sculpture
Artist Jason Maynard concludes his 10-year exploration of the cultural relevance and symbolic reference to candy in this stunning sculpture, “Suicide Socialite”.
This Paris Hilton inspired and beautifully rendered piece takes on the guise of neither the moral high ground, nor the role of a public service announcement. In reality, this piece speaks more of Maynard’s masterful portrayal of the pinnacle of modern day mob mentality’s ability to build higher and higher pedistals for their celebrity objects to sit – for the pleasure of seeing them fall.
In this piece, Maynard brings his audience both the elegance of handling the subject through his medium, as well as the poise with which the subject effortlessly offers herself up for the taking.
The Venice Contemporary proudly invites you to view this particularly poignant and relevant piece of art for a very limited time.
