A career retrospective devoted to the work of groundbreaking painter and musician Llyn Foulkes.

The Hammer looks back with a retrospective of over 150 paintings gathered from public and private collectors in the U.S. and Europe.

From the Hammer website:

The exhibition will explore the entire scope of the artist's career, including early cartoons and drawings, his macabre, emotionally-charged paintings of the early 1960s; his epic rock and postcard paintings of the late 1960s and early 1970s; his "bloody head" series of mutilated figures from the late 1970s through the present; his social commentary paintings targeting corporate America (especially Disney), which include his remarkable narrative tableaux that combine painting with woodworking, found materials, and thick mounds of mixed media, seamlessly blended into the painted surface to create a remarkable illusion of depth.

The Hammer is closed on Mondays.
