From my review of Providence artist Christopher Forgues’s “Hell” at Stairwell in Providence:
Forgues's neat pencil drawings (some augmented with watercolor and gouache), paintings, collages, and screenprints show strange mutant monsters, fights, and bizarre sexual visions, like a lady perched atop an erect penis emerging from a woman's leg. A green figure with orange hair lurks atop a tower. The images seem like cryptic reports from strange wandering journeys through distant esoteric lands.Read the rest here.
Christopher Forgues “Hell,” Stairwell, 504 Broadway, Providence, Oct. 26 to Nov. 23, 2008.
