An Ape Allegory by Todd Schorr

Look who's here - just in time for Easter? Yes, it's thee Easter Bunneh... err.. Gorilla. He has his best suit on and wants to play with you and give you eggs filled with tentacled, clawed monsters! Awwww! o_O

Todd Schorr might be surprised to learn that I think about him every single morning when I go to get the orange juice and the soy milk out of the fridge and look at the poster for his Golden Age of Hypocrisy show that I've blue-tacked to it. (God, I haaate unmagnetic fridges! It's the whole bloody point of fridges that they're magnetic so that you can stick all your shit to them! And what will I do with my magnetic fridge poetry set now? Hmm?? Gah!).

Anyway, as much as I dislike the fact that Todd is totally useless at updating his site, I do admire his artistic patience as it seems that he has once again spent many tormented, sleepless nights putting an insane amount of grotesque details into his new works.

For those of you lucky enough to live in L.A., you can now go and see the mind-boggling works of Todd's The World We Live In show in their full splendour at Merry Karnowsky at 170 S. La Brea Avenue - while I have to watch this video here. Life is so unfair right now.

Hours: Tue - Sat: 12 - 6 PM

Address: Merry Karnowsky Gallery, 170 S. La Brea Avenue (in the Art 170 Building), Los Angeles
