The Null Device
Meanwhile in New York, the governor has asked prison officials to ban convicted killers from exhibiting art
at prison art shows. This ban was prompted by
serial killer and irrepressible artist Arthur Shawcross, 11 of whose works
(including innocuously cheesy fairy-tale fantasy paintings and a sketch of
Princess Diana) were exhibited at the Corrections on Canvas exhibit.
Shawcross, like a latter-day De Sade of kitsch, sparked outrage two years ago by
having paintings and poems smuggled out of prison and sold on eBay.
