Curated by Jon Beinart of beinArt Collective and Publishing, “beinArt Collective 2013” is a group show that revels in the macabre. The participating artists, including Chet Zar, Christian Rex van Minnen, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Kikyz 1313, Kris Lewis, Erik Thor Sandberg and Caitlin Hackett, all have a dark edge to their work that is manifested in different ways. Christian Rex van Minnen’s work is visceral and grotesque, playing on his viewers’ gag reflexes, while Chet Zar’s subject matter is outright diabolical and Erik Thor Sandberg’s mythological narratives have a brutal quality. “BeinArt Collective” opens at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on November 9. Take a look at a sneak peek of the show after the jump.

In her recent sculptures, Qixuan Lim, also known as QimmyShimmy, continues to meld everyday objects with disconcerting elements. Her recent project, created for an upcoming show at Beinart Gallery next month, inserts one of her realistic organs into dumplings. Or as she says: “For those who wonder why your wontons are so wrinkly.” Her sculptures are crafted in polymer clay.
