The other day on a Chelsea gallery walk, I happened into Shoot the Lobster and I happened upon the genius exhibit “Poster Child” by Bruce Pavlow.  Pavlow has photographed posters of various pop culture subjects and has superimposed stickers over these famous images that completely change the context of the original work.

For example, taking the image of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” album cover, you’ll see the words “Happy,” “Boys will be boys” “Fairy Tale” and so on on the poster thus leaving the viewer to examine the dark side of the singer and double entendre of Pavlow’s work.

These photos do not do justice to how much you will laugh and wince, so head over to Shoot The Lobster, located at 540 W 29th Street before October 12, 2013 to see “Poster Child” by Bruce Pavlow.
