GROTESQUE HALLUCINATION Baldwin’s Mule.

Taylor Baldwin of Richmond, Virginia, makes elegant, fine-lined pen drawings of mutilated bodies around a blasted and bullet-pocked Jersey barrier, and a dying mule fallen onto its side, laying in a puddle of vomit (or something) and spilling packs and furniture from its back. His delicate hyperrealism makes the grotesque destruction feel hallucinatory.

FROTHY AND GOTHY Jones’s Never Let You Go.

Christine Jones of Philadelphia offers sugary, hallucinatory videos of disembodied lady heads blowing bubble gum or spitting up chocolate (I think) and licking ice cream cones. She adds zonked-out skull-faced women, balloons, and pearl necklaces for a frothy, gothy, Marilyn Minter-eque confection. She also makes obsessive, folksy pencil drawings stuffed to overflowing with flowers and bows and braids and jeweled crowns. Frilly, lacey designs multiply and kaleidoscope into visionary patterns.
