Joe Sola by Stuart HorodnerPosted: March 22, 2015
As part of an exercise for our tutorial we were told to look at a journal is order to get some inspiration. In a journal entitled BOMB magazine I came across this still from a short film named “Joe Sola” by Stuart Horodner. The thing that attracted me to this image was the casual take on such a gruesome scene. It could be said that this scene has normalised evil. This is highlighted with the normal headless men sitting down as if engaging in conversation.
“Joe Sola is known for hilariously aggressive and disarmingly tender art activities, often involving his own body and combinations of pencils, paint, video, and unlikely collaborators. High-school football players, male porn stars, female escorts, and LA voice-over artists have all played parts in his live events and filmed productions. Add guppies, power tools, preppy clothing, and blood, and you get a decent sense of his palette.”
