Great Art or Gross Out?
This year, British artist Marc Quinn will make a cast of his head out of his own frozen blood. It will be the fifth such mask that the artist has made. He says he is making the “blood heads” as a way to document the aging process. The work has brought Quinn fame and controversy. Some people praise his work for pushing the boundaries of portraiture. Others criticize it was a stunt meant to shock and disgust people.
