Showing through the end of the year at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Atomic Cocktail from Todd Schorr (featured) is an expansive new exhibition featuring iconic paintings pulled from various collections, new works that have never been shown to the public, sculpture, and preparatory studies. Drawing from influences ranging from artists Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, and Salvador Dali, as well as the early animated cartoons of Walt Disney and Max Fleischer, underground comics best exemplified by Zap, and classic films from the 1930’s such as King Kong and Frankenstein, the Los Angeles-based artist weaves together complex compositions that immerse the viewer in his special blend of surreal imagery. Take a look at more photos from the show below as well as some footage in the video below as Schorr talks a little about his work and inspirations.
