MELBOURNE///OPENINGS///TODD JAMES’ “DISASTER & DOUBLE DISASTER” AT DON’T COME GALLERY
Melbourne’s uninvitingly named hotspot DON’T COME GALLERY is currently playing host to “Disaster & Double Disaster,” a show of new paintings by NYC’s resident cartoon agitator TODD JAMES (aka: REAS) that opened its doors to a dedicated crowd of fanboys and girls last weekend. Continuing his brightly-colored critique of the American corporate war machine, James has created an extended series of medium sized pieces starring his familiar array of tanks, girls, bombs, battleships, and fighter jets, all joyfully beating the crap out of one another with plenty of blood spilled to show for it. Hopefully, with Obama officially behind the desk, REAS’ days of wartime inspiration will be numbered, but in the meantime, he’s in like Halliburton, mining the current US-led aggression for all the visual inspiration its worth. While the show is nearly sold out, four beautifully executed limited-edition prints are available for sale from Don’t Come while they last. HAVE A LOOK:
