ALIBI "START OFF SUMMER" ART REVIEW



"Jack Larson

Bloody zombies in tuxedos at a wedding of the damned, a ghoul who looks kind of like Pinhead from Hellraiser, Roswell aliens and dead-eyed pooches—these are just some of the ingredients that make up Jack Larson's disarmingly crude paintings. And the result is a maniacally eerie world that meets somewhere between the minds of George Romero and Edvard Munch.
The artist sums up his work with one brief Romero quote: "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth ... ." A theme to notice: Larson's undead are all coming to get us—their arms outstretched, attempting to break free of the canvas and shred human flesh."
