Double Happiness by Folkert de Jong, styrofoam, pigmented polyurethane foam, pearls, 2008

Folkert de Jong's Thousand Years Business As Usual opens at James Cohan Gallery in Shanghai tonight.

It has always deeply impressed me how de Jong can turn styrofoam into charismatic animals whose grotesqueness could easily compete with some of the creatures in Francisco de Goya's Caprichos.
