Open until December 4th at Rome's Mondo Bizzaro gallery is a show featuring new work by the bizarre and delicious favorite favorite, Junko Mizuno. Her lovely ladies always have elements of the erotic mixed with tasty treats, blood and nurses wielding giant needles.After the Mizuno show closes, another favorite of mine, Amy Sol, opens her new show "Smoke and Water". Her work is usually created on wood panels and for this show, she's switched to using watercolors and graphite on paper. The rest of the show is up here before it opens next month. The piece above reminds me of "The Dark Crystal." Although both their styles and color palettes are different, there is something of the lone female here, accompanied only by creepy or cuddly creatures.
