Bruce Eichelberger’s anti-authoritarian ideology is no secret. All one has to do is glance down at the four-letter expletive tattooed on his knuckles to get the sense that this self-taught artist harbors a disdain for social conventions. His monochromatic artworks combine drawing and sculpture, covering wooden skulls and hand-carved frames with Boschian orgies of vice, rendered in a comic book-like style reminiscent of R. Crumb. Eichelberger’s current show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in LA, “Babel,” is rife with sacrilegious imagery and cynical reflections of contemporary society. Take a look at some photos from Eichelberger’s studio below and see the show on view through December 29.
