Flayed & Displayed

Andrew Hoeppner (aka "Heppy," if it isn't presumptuous to tag him by a nickname in a blog post) had some pleasantly gruesome work displayed behind the art building -- a piece he worked up for New Genres.

The latex pieces looked like patches of skin -- while having some painterly qualities, too, as if someone had razored off and magnified some brushstrokes from an impasto canvas.

They hang somewhere between expressionist extravagence and slaughterhouse effluvia.

In the pictures where there are people in the frame along with the sculpture, I find it impossible to avoid drawing correspondences between the two sets of figures.

The last two photos were nicked from the SNC/FA facebook gallery and Brittany Sterling's blog, respectively.
