The amazing artist Elizabeth McGrath, best known for her creepy-cute faux taxidermy mutants, has a show of watercolor paintings opening tomorrow night, May 10, in Los Angeles. Liz has created more than 50 paintings for this exhibition, titled The Secret Party. It runs until June 4 at the Bill Shire Fine Arts gallery, and all of the work is also viewable online. I'd imagine that this is Liz's last show for a little while as her awesome goth-country band, Miss Derringer, is about to go on tour with Blondie!

  1. Seriously (delightfully) quintessentially creepy and not much about it (well the sculpture anyway) qualifies as cute. Truly horrorshow!

  2. Looks like something you’d see on a Hot Toppic t-shirt. Its depressing how much of modern art is more to do with fashion than anything else.
