Jen Wang/Jason Freedman: The Vivisector


Happy Halloween! Jen Wang designed (based on the series design), Jason Freedman created the collage.

From Penguin: " Hurtle Duffield, a painter, coldly dissects the weaknesses of any and all who enter his circle. His sister’s deformity, a grocer’s moonlight indiscretion, the passionate illusions of the women who love him—all are used as fodder for his art. It is only when Hurtle meets an egocentric adolescent whom he sees as his spiritual child does he experience a deeper, more treacherous emotion in this tour de force of sexual and psychological menace that sheds brutally honest light on the creative experience."

Jen says, "...the basic idea was to capture the intensity with which Mr Duffield expresses himself. Sometimes beautiful things are difficult to look at. Not all things are meant to be easy on the eyes but that does not make them less significant."
