Dirty Eyes

Le Dernier Cri

October 29th – November 20th, 2010

The Hills Esthetic Center present an exhibition from the French Print House Le Dernier Cri. Based in Marseille, France, Le Dernier Cri specializes in extreme, grotesque and scatological subject matter expressed through exquisite printmaking. Often the scenes depicted are manic and perverse; drawings fill the surface of the paper with a very strong sense of horror vacui. Le Dernier Cri is comprised of artists Pakito Bolino and Caroline Sury, whom have been working diligently since the 1990’s on the fringe of the art-print, comics, and publishing worlds. This work stands alone as a more direct and confrontational graphic hand-drawn style in relation to artists like Gary Panter and the former Fort Thunder Collective.
