ALTHEA AT 13 WITH KUSKA, WHO ALWAYS WEARS HIS LITTLE CROWN.  Steven Arnold borrowed the monkey in this tableau from window dresser and fashion enthusiast Simon Doonan.

“The images in Steven’s work cover the broadest possible range, from the commonplace to the most arcane.  You will find a teaspoon, you will find a skull.  There are drag-queens and Gods, fishes and angels, nudes and fools; trivia mingles with idealism, esoterica with kitch.  He wants you to have a good time, he wants you to be transformed forever, he wants to trouble and amuse you, poke fun at you and put you in a sweat, he wants you to feel wonderful and we are all invited to the party he’s giving in heaven.  Black tie optional: you might prefer yourself in polka dots and globs of golden goo.”

JAMES LEO HERLIHY, Author of MIDNIGHT COWBOY
