Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Victoria Reynolds' Meatscapes at Richard Heller, NYC

by Suzanne on February 22nd, 2011

PUBLIC SERVICE NOTICE: Apart from nausea and cramps, I'm feeling a lot better already and will be tackling the backlog of emails and comments in reverse chronological order very soon. Thank you for your patience.

Down the Primrose Path by Victoria Reynolds, oil on panel, 2003 - click to enlarge

As a full-time vegetarian and part-time vegan, I've always felt nauseous looking at raw animal meat (whereas, strangely enough, I am totally confortable staring at human flesh) which is probably why Victoria Reynolds's works have fascinated me for a long time now.

As mistress of painted meat landscapes, Victoria truly holds a monopoly in a rather bizarre niche of oil painting.

Her new works can now be seen at Richard Heller Gallery until March 19.
