i really love his work. especially his bicycle sculptures, duh. but the graphite on bone 'drawings'? i am envious of, wish i would have done it first. :)
Yeah, no kidding- so ballsy to draw on skulls and whale bones. He interests me because he's so successful but doesn't really seem to have a cohesive body work. Yeah, he explores installation, but there isn't much of a thread between each piece in his oeuvre (for lack of a better word). I heard his MoMA show was really excellent but kind of discordant. Fascinating that he's gotten so much notoriety.
Also, Eric- have you looked at Matthew Barney? I think you'd really like him.
