Ray Johnson - Untitled (Golf Balls with Brick Snake)

Sidney Mishkin Gallery, Baruch College

"The snake, with its symbolic power of self-renewal through the periodic shedding of skin, was a very significant image for Johnson, an artist of ever-changing sensibility. The phallic shape simultaneously implies sexual and artistic potency."
