Scorpio for this week:
Sculptor Luis Jimenez was renowned for making large pieces with political themes that incited controversy. In “The Barfly,” created during the Vietnam War, he depicted the Statue of Liberty as a drunken floozy. “Vaquero” shows a Mexican cowboy riding a bucking stallion and waving a gun. It not only satirizes the pretentious statues of military leaders on horses that are often found in parks; it’s also a reminder that the original cowboys of the American West were Mexicans. “It’s not my job to censor myself,” Jimenez said. “An artist’s job is to constantly test the boundaries.” Whether or not you’re an artist yourself, Scorpio, your next assignment is aligned with Jimenez’s approach: Don’t censor yourself as you test the boundaries.
Heh, boundaries eh? That seems to be the topic du Jour with me. Of course, there goes the polite way to explain boundaries. 😡 Just kidding. I promise I’ll be nice.
