Can you just say WRONG! However, in the end it is not us who judges you.
There is offensive and then there is offensive. If one ever wanted to know what gets one a sure fire one way ticket to HELL, creating “scratch and sniff” on the breasts of a likeness of the Virgin Mary just might do it. Last Spring it was Chocolate Jesus and now its “scratch n’ sniff” Virgin Mary. Cosimo Cavallaro, the Canadian-born artist claims he is not being sensational.
Could anyone imagine if this so-called artist ever did “scratch ‘n sniff” Mohammad? How many buildings in cities across the world would be burned to the ground and people killed? Let alone the the fatwa on his head. But its OK to go after Christianity.
”It sounds pretty sick to me,” said John Horvat, a spokesman for the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property. “Obviously this man has an agenda. He’s targeting very revered religious figures.”
The gallery director said critics misunderstood the artist’s intentions.
“I see it as basically a show about healing,” Ronald Sosinski said. “The sculptures are extremely traditional when you see them in their use of material. When you first see them they look like bronzes.” (News Day)
Get a load of what this “artist” and attention whore does find offensive.
“Depictions of Jesus in plastic or wood are what I find offensive,” he said. “With my work, you don’t want it to melt, so you have to be more aware of the time you have with it. It’s more alive.”
