Dark Visions

xxMr. Huff’s Teeth in the Articulator // Clayton Pond // 1970 // lithograph

Recently on view at the Norton Simon was the exhibition “Dark Visions: Mid-Century Macabre.” Intriguing. What sort of visions? Looking into the future? Into your soul? Why is it so horrifying? Well the one room exhibition explored the innermost darkest feelings and anxieties of 20th-century artists such as Leon Golub and Clayton Pond. Certainly makes you think about your own apprehensions and just may fill you with unease.
