As we get closer to the opening of “Hi-Fructose Presents: The Art of the Mushroom,” the group show at The Compound Gallery that explores the fungus that’s inspired artists for centuries, organizers offer more snippets and previews of the show each day. Take the interactive, moving “Cradle of Life” throne (below), which is just about ready to host revelers. See Part 1 of our preview of the show here.
Slimy skeletons find themselves captive in dark dungeons in Charlie Immer’s latest drawings and paintings. The artist (featured in HF Vol. 11) renders sinewy textures and jelly-like consistencies to make his viewers squirm. Immer currently has a show with Paul Pope on view at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn through January 4. The exhibition features several new dark yet fluorescent paintings as well as a rare look at his drawings on paper.
