Adam Parker Smith

Here's a still from Brooklyn-based artist, Adam Parker Smith's "Bold As Love" exhibition that was held in NYC just over a year ago.
The exhibition creates a grusome soft-sculptural graveyard of severed heads, inspired by Ernest Hemingway's "For Whom The Bell Tolls". The show created a chilling social commentary on how art (through the ages) has repeatedly sourced violence and the grotesque as an inspiration and how our love affair with death continues to be channeled as a consumerist form of entertainment.
