Serial Künstler

made it down to KW this past weekend to check out ‘Internal Digging’ the spectacular Joe Coleman show. For those unfamiliar with his work Coleman is a painter, performance artist and collector of dark memorabilia. Many of his obsessions revolve around the ultraviolence and perversity of american society and its serial killers. Paintings of Ed Gein, John Dillinger and other american psychocelebrities are on exhibit alongside Coleman’s collection of wax figures, mummies and circus wagons. While the spooky carnival of Coleman’s imagination will leave an impression on all who examine it, a certain familiarity with the dark side of american history will provide a helpful context for this psychedelic sensory overload. keep in mind: this is not for the weak of heart or stomach….
