Opening Night Photos: Joe Ledbetter's Magnus Maximus

Juxtapoz // Friday, 18 Jun 2010

Recognized worldwide for his combinations of cute and cuddly creatures with unfortunate — albeit humorous — situations, Ledbetter takes his work in Magnus Maximus to new heights for the exhibition.

 

Pushing his craftsmanship and design aesthetic further than before here, he employs a lighter color palette of pure whites and pale hues on blonde wood panels, and he introduces baroque embellishments, inspired old world European architecture and design.
