On View: David M. Cook’s “Death to Everyone is Gonna Come” at Cotton Candy Machine

Last weekend, David M. Cook (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 17) opened a tongue-in-cheek solo show at Brooklyn's Cotton Candy Machine titled "Death to Everyone is Gonna Come." Using finely-tuned line work, Cook crafts a cast of characters that emerge from the multi-colored geometric grids. But despite their mathematical precision, these surreal, skull-headed beings have a humorous air about them. They clench their teeth as they traverse the abstract landscape of hallucinatory colors, seeming to react to the sensory overload of the work itself. Take a look at the works in "Death to Everyone is Gonna Come" after the jump and see the show at CCM through August 4.
