Painter Jeff Musser’s work mirrors all the deep, dark aspects of his personality: morbid, cutting humor; awkward intensity; gory truth and tender humanism. With miraculous attention to color and composition, Musser paints realism that is at once melancholy but full of insight. His latest series, Body of Work, attempts to make sense of this tattoo-obsessed generation. Using dramatic light and alarming attention to detail, Musser finds subtle, interesting, unique and humorous ways to figure out “why people choose to express themselves in such a permanent way.” Keep an eye out for Musser’s piece entitled “Maybe Now My Paintings Will Be Weird Enough for You Pseudo Art Intellectual Assholes.” See? There’s that humor we know and love.
