For those of you who have been hiding behind a rock for the past decade or so, Robert Crumb has become one of the most famous underground comic artist's known to date. A strange and fascinating man, his work continues to shock and amaze even the most open-minded of people. His attention to detail and brilliant imagination have won him many fans as well as critics over the years.
Today I mourn the loss of my Wisdom Teeth. I feel as though this sculpture by Scottish artist David Shrigley is a fitting tribute to this fact.
"David Shrigley is well known for his witty sculpture's, drawings and hand-written texts. His art frequently asks questions about the nature of contemporary art and its audience. In his sculptural works, he makes physical some of his more curious and eccentric propositions by transforming found objects or by playing with their scale. Shrigley enlarges objects and imbues them with funny eccentric proportions as is the case of "Brass Tooth". "
"If rock photography is a "silent window into the world of sound," then "Who Shot Rock & Roll, A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present," curated by Gail Buckland, is the loudest exhibit ever. Opening last night at The Brooklyn Museum, "Who Shot Rock" explores intimacy, passion and the countless other reasons we all love rock and roll in the first place." -Ben Eagle for The Huffington Post
