“Every artist stands on the shoulders of those who came before to see a little further.” When I was waking down a beach on Maui with Carl, we saw this tree trunk. I told Carl, “Mapplethorpe put black men on pedestals after George Dureau made photos of men on pedestals who were midgets or amputees. The pedestal is, of course, a classical idea. I asked Carl to climb the tree. “We’re going to make the Bianchi version of the Mapplethorpe version of the Dureau version of the pedestaled nude.”<br />
