“I tend to dislike cute art, but Mark Curtis’ Stairway to Heaven, though sweet and funny, is witty with a little bite. And definitely unusual. Heaven is the name of a popular gay nightclub in London – in Charing Cross. Curtis’ sculpture shows a ladder ascending to a cloud nesting where the ceiling meets the wall. At its base is a handsome security man toting glitter-coated carbines. At the top, in true Rococo fashion, are five darling, bare-assed angels hovering around the cloud, feathered wings a-fluttering, all keen to get on the dance floor.”
