Arthur Dooley

BY BOB GAUNT
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

Bob Gaunt tells us about the artist Arthur Dooley, a janitor turned sculptor. His story seems influenced by writer Jacques Rancier, whose book reflects the redistribution of the social order, which Dooley immitated in his change from low value employee to independent artist. Gaunt explores Dooley's stations of the cross series, which evoke a mix of traditionally christian and labor-conscious communist thinking.
