Grif­fin em­ploys an­cient im­agery

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR -

Re­gard­ing “Grif­fin Will Still Mock Trump” [June 3]: I ask you to con­sider the iconog­ra­phy posted by Kathy Grif­fin. Her im­agery is as old as time, and she has, as in all art, up­dated the im­age for a mod­ern au­di­ence. Are we now to dis­par­age the time-hon­ored and revered images of Perseus and the head of Me­dusa; Ju­dith and the head of Holofernes and even Salome? Art needs to be rein­vented to strike a chord with the so­ci­ety in which it lives. Kene J. Rosa Los Angeles
