Masami Teraoka

Masami Teraoka has an amazing and ambitious new show opening at Samuel Freeman Gallery in LA. I've been aware of his work for a long time, and very interested in it although I admit I haven't ever taken the time to really research it. He usually seems to deal with socio political themes. This one looks like it's all about organized religion. Seeing this new body of work reminded me I want to do a big post soon about the "re-emergence" of the grotesque in art.
