Surprisingly interesting and likable. Thanks for the post dobbs.

The images reminded me at first of vintage embroidered postcards and then of the geometry of a Marcel Duchamp.

This one is really reminding me of the standard 'episode cliffhanger shot' before this credit sequence runs.

"Oh no, Doctor! The string... it's... ALIVE!"

Definitely...reminds me of a rather enjoyable album by a Ms. Feist; though her album artwork is a bit less acupuncture-y.

This looks like art from a mentally disturbed person. All the radiating lines around eyeballs?

Looks like something they'd find taped to the wall of the shed where the bodies are buried.

Nice find dobbs. Here is some more and an interview from last october.

I find them somewhat disturbing. They way he obliterates the faces and the identities of these people. Akin to scratching them out with a marker. In the interview he says, "I am re-celebrating anonymous people"... which I don't get from these at all. I think he is oddly desecrating these people. a, it's a one-trick-pony bit. Not much variation once you've seen one. But, hey... if it gets you noticed, and sells, it's all good, right?

There is nothing wrong in art being "disturbing".
To my way of thinking this immediately brings to mind this; and this shouts Grace Jones at me.
Riflemaker has more including an objet which could be hommage to Meret Oppenheimer or Mimi Parent.
