MICHAEL HUSSAR- I had a book of his work about 3 years ago and sadly let someone borrow it, never to be seen again. I love his work for the obvious dramatic antithesis of fashion and beauty. All dressed up and nowhere to go. It's stands as a reminder that nothing is ever as it seems. There is always some ugly underneath that is not shared. Also, they seem to have a nastalgic feeling of times past with sexual and religious references like the old Masters. While working in a very classical style he comes off very contemporary with his added grotesque, emotional and dramatic and truly dark and sometimes suicidal themes.
