City Art: Sinister grotesqueries visit @WWgallery in All the Dead Dears

This face, if a face it is or was or will be, is grotesque. It fascinates me, but then grotesques usually do. Nothing quite excites as something not quite right.

The piece is by Mindy Lee and entitled John’s Overfaced. It’s part of an exhibition called All the Dead Dears, which Mindy is co-curating with Sarah Gillham at the WW Gallery near Chancery Lane.

More details at the WW Gallery website.
