David Altmejd’s hybrid sculptures make me attempt to coin a new term in order to help describe my fascination with them. Gruesomely beautiful perhaps? I’ll let the readers decide. Altmejd’s focus on visual tension between contrasting textures and materials conjures up the art of Joseph Beuys. David exhibits at Stuart shave/Modern Art, October 16 – November on 23-25 Eastcastle Street, london W1.
