I'm The Star Of A Surrealist Art Collage

Artist Stephania Gambaroff put together this trippy and remarkable work that has me riding a pig, flanked by a lady on a horse, Godiva-style, as well as various flowers, jewels, checkerboards, and nipples.

Gambaroff is going to give me the backstory, but in the meantime, any guesses?

 I think the artist ate two tins of dented .99 cent sardines and had an intensely psychedelic experience after reading La Dolce..

the pink color is great. I love the Lady Godiva and her horse but it have no legs...Maybe a message from Stephania!Bernard

Cockroaches arranged in a neat raw, on the Lynchian  ground. Female torso with multiple breasts like a she-wolf, i picture little monsters suckling on those beer bottles. And lady Godiva going: 'OMG, this is gross!'. The guy in shorts doesn't notice anything but himself, camera *hore. And Michael Musto doesn't give a shit about any of this, he grabbed his beer and is riding past all of this on a pig. This artist has a scene of humor I wanna meet her

Here's Stephania's explanation:

"I was coming from an opening in Chelsea when i saw an old-fashioned brown box on the curb. The box was from the streameline design era, which made its contents instantly of interest to me.  "The box contained a bunch of old slides. As an aesthetics of nostalgia - old slides are fascinating beasts. But was i ever surprised to discover that they belonged to the Lime Light Epoch  and were made by some unknown female  photographer, who wasn't very good. Party monster and everyone being fabulous and liberated in  NY is appealing to me, but there were you simply  riding a pig  on one slide and giving a peck on the plaster cheek of   an ancient Greek sculpture copy on another slide. I thought it was timeless. The idea for the painting was born. "Important detail of the story was that my friends were extremely  ( and i mean with exhilarating agitation) interested  in the animal-fucking-websites that came up when i was doing the research on hedonism. Apparently everybody likes animals."

It's a metaphor for how the bon mots du Musto are casting pearls before the swine of mainstream breeder America. What the half naked guy is doing there I have no idea. Perhaps Lady Godiva threw him off the horse.

All pop art is equal, but some pop art is more equal than others.

Too bad you're not riding the guy in the shorts.

She went to the zoo, had heat stroke, and made a collage?
