Opening Photos: Grady Gordon at Pure Evil Gallery LondonJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 12 Jul 2011
We have been championing Grady Gordon's work on the site for most of 2011, and our London correspondent, Butterfly, made it to Gordon's opening at Pure Evil Gallery in London. The show, Birth of Namahage, featured new monotype prints from the artist.
As the gallery notes, "In his fifth series of monotype prints, Grady Gordon examines the 'Namahage,' an elusive member of the Japanese Yokai, an amalgamation of various monsters and myths. In Western culture, the Namhage is equivalent to the boogeyman.”
