Maureen Mullarkey controversy


I have a low opinion of people who lack integrity-- especially artists who lack integrity in regards to their art and the message they convey within it. There is nothing worse than an artist who promotes an idea visually when in reality he or she does not support the message that he or she is conveying to viewers. I learned from Edward Winkleman’s blog that another artist has been exposed for lack of integrity within the context of her art-- that artist is, Maureen Mullarkey. She has made a career as a gay rights advocate and has sold painting after painting involving aspects of the gay community. Turns out she donated $1,000 to Proposition 8 and has since stated that gay marriage is against nature and civilization. As far as I'm concerned her work has lost all validity.

Here is my post about it: http://www.myartspace.com/blog/2009/02/paintings-by-maureen-mullarkey-are.html
