Oh god. I guess I choose big sculptures of ordinary objects to disturbingly proportioned and nicely lit people? Oldenberg. I've seen the typewriter eraser. It's...big? At an improbable angle?

Oldenburg. The Free Stamp in Cleveland is so cool.

I consider "not taking yourself seriously" to be a major plus for anybody, but it seems particularly refreshing with modern art. And stands in contrast against an artist extending someone's neck for no particular reason.

Oldenburg.

Hmmm, I guess I'll go with Oldenburg.

I guess I'll go with Oldenburg. Dunno if it looks to me like someone not taking themselves seriously, though.

Susan goes with Oldenburg.

Parmigianino. Oldenburg does nothing for me.

Parmigiano claims the last two votes, but it's too little too late and he goes down to the King of Pop, eight votes to three.
