madonna and children



I defy any fan of kitsch not to fall immediately in love with this vulgar, slick digestion in a single image, "Blessed Art Thou" of the annoying sanctification of celebrity that runs rampant in American culture, but also the sanctification of self that certain celebrities like Jolie seem to engage in endlessly. North Carolina artist Kate Kretz proves that Southerners are often the most adept smart-asses when it comes to feeding our culture back to us on a pitchfork.

Thee and me and Blake Gopnik appear to be the sum total of art writers who have weighed on re this. Thanks for so doing.
