GEORGE HUGNET : THE LOVE LIFE OF THE SPUMIFERS




At the opening of George Hugnet’s The Love Life of the Spumifers at UBU Gallery last night, an older gentleman made a comment to my friend and I that ‘nothing changes – beauty stays the same from age to age.’ While that comment has provided fodder to many fiery debates, it cuts to the heart of what Hugnet offers us: Damsels, Demons, and Sex. These images activate our intrinsic fascination with beauty and the grotesque, and more specifically, our desire to see the fusion of the two.
