Brooklyn-based artist Brian Alfred opened his latest show “It’s Already the End of the World” last Friday at New York’s Haunch of Venison. In this new exhibition of painting, collage and animated video, Alfred puts a flat, pop veneer on the cult of personality and the globalized modern world. Many of the works are portraits of contemporary figures ranging from Burmese opposition leader Aung Sun Suu Kyi to Branch Davidian cult figure David Koresh to artists Dzine and Mickalene Thomas, while others are politically charged scenes such as international airliners in flight and the Attica prison riots.
