Judith in controversy

15 May

Wayne Lo, "Judith And Holofernes," 2008, embroidery and paint on manila, 9 x 11.75 in, sold by Hyaena Gallery, Burbank, California, US

on the morning of December 14, 1992, Wayne Lo – a Taiwanese-American student – killed two people and wounded four during a shooting spree at Simon’s Rock College of Bard in Massachusetts.    he is currently serving two life sentences without the possibility of parole.   one of Lo’s friends established SkidLo.net to help the victims of the rampage with the purchase of drawings, paintings and embroidered art made by Lo.   all the proceeds are donated to The Galen Gibson Fund.

controversial, yes.    especially when the art depicts a murder.
