Work of Art Winner Defends Lola, Praises The Sucklord and Depends on Waterproof Mascara

After all the studio flirtations, scatological subject matter and soggy breakdowns, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist crowned its second season winner Wednesday night.

[WARNING: The following interview reveals the winner and details from the finale.]

In her final exhibition challenge, Iranian-American painter Kymia Nawabi created an installation that examined the concept of what comes after death through detailed drawings, amplified with textured paints and accompanying burial sculptures. She beat out performance artist Young Sun Han and figurative painter Sara Jimenez to win a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum in addition to the $100,000 cash prize. Not bad for a waitress with only $50 to her name.

Work of Art’s The Sucklord on How the Kids Challenge Ruined Him

The Sucklord entered Bravo's Work of Art a brazen supervillain, but left defeated by, among other things, his sentimental side. At the end of this week's episode, he went home after co-designing a colorless maze as street art, a project that he says was the result of having been beaten down physically and emotionally by the competition. "I didn't see it coming but once it came it made total sense to me," he says. "There's not a lot of sleeping that goes on in these things. I was practically half-asleep throughout the entire challenge so I wasn't totally cognizant of what was going on, as evidenced by the mediocrity of my art work. I failed the challenge, I failed the show, I failed the competition. It was time for me to get the hell out of there."

TVGuide.com spoke to The Sucklord (nee Morgan Phillips) on Thursday about why he thinks the kids challenge crippled him and why he's working on a China Chow action figure over, say, a Jerry Saltz one. Plus, his thoughts on Lord of the Rings vs. Star Wars, Lola vs. Sarah K, Jerk of Art, penises, and more:

Work of Art's Bayeté: I Couldn't Pull It Together At All

Did choosing a headline about Sister Act do him in? Or was it Simon's words of encouragement that led him down the wrong path? Perhaps, as judge Jerry Saltz suspects, exhaustion became a factor. Work of Art's Bayeté Ross Smith says the bottom line is he was sent home because his golden doorway just wasn't very good. TVGuide.com spoke with the 34-year-old multimedia artist, photographer and arts educator about what went wrong during this week's "Ripped from the Headlines" challenge, what the doors were supposed to say, and calling The Sucklord Sucklord:

Bravo welcomes SJP's new reality series

In the Sarah Jessica Parker-produced series, 14 designers who work in various mediums, compete for the chance to win a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum and $100,000 cash. Each week, a panel of judges, including New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz and British model-actress China Chow (who's also the show's host), critique the work and eliminate one artist.

But this is no stuffy museum piece, says Simon de Pury, an art auctioneer and Work of Art's mentor. "I think everybody ... read more
