Saturday 09 May 1998
Art take The apocalyptic visions of painter Joe Coleman have a cult following in America. Far left: Coleman's portrait of Ed Gein, the Wisconsin serial killer, and the inspiration for The Silence of the Lambs. Coleman peers meekly out at the world, while behind him are depicted scenes from his childhood, scenes of atrocities. scenes from the graveyard. Left: in Mommy/Daddy, Coleman's parents - his aggressive, alcoholic father, his softer, sadder mother - are shown as two halves, joined. Both died of cancer. Their diseased organs appear on their bodies. See more of the artist's challenging and disturbing work at the Chamber of Pop Culture, London WC1, until 30 May.
