Ooey, Gooey and Creepy Crawly

Chicago-based artist Paul Nudd is known for using “gross” and “subversive” subject matter (think ooey gooey and creepy crawly) and turning it into a work of art, notes John Clark of Provocate.org.

Playful, grotesque and beautiful all at once, the artist's work pushes the Chicago imagists into the 21st Century.

Nudd, who is part of the group show Multiple Propositions in the main galleries of the Herron School of Art at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis through 15 September, will lecture on his art and inspiration at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow (31 August) in the Basile Auditorium of Eskenazi Hall, 735 West New York Street, Indianapolis.
