Marco Mazzoni‘s new show, River of Milk, is currently exhibiting at Roq La Rue. Bright, startlingly vivid, and poetic, these vibrantly colored pieces are dreamlike and evoke a sense of poignancy, such as the almost stunning emotion and visual impact given off by the vision of the crow-wreathed face in Medusa (below). See the entire show here.
Last but not least, not included in the show, this is an image posted on Marco Mazzoni’s Tumblr page of a stunningly gorgeous triptych entitled The Songwriters (click for larger image):
Aubrey Learner‘s incredibly realistic, detailed drawings are intriguing studies in precision and subtly disturbing grotesqueness. Reminiscent of naturalist illustrations, her imagery combines inorganic elements such as scissors, ribbons, corset lacing, and female undergarments, with insects, leeches, butterflies, snails, and worms. These cryptic, symbolic compositions have the abstruse mystery of installations, and evoke a jarring sense of repulsion and juxtaposition.

Jungle Cookie is an artist whose style I love, and these are a couple of concert posters she’s created for her band TW!Am.
