Lady Liberty just got tagged by Jesus’s cross phallus and everything exploded into melted colors and distorted guts. Brooklyn artist Aaron Johnson meticulous, psychedelic acrylics plaster the post-Bush national nightmare starring Uncle Sam and the Head Honcho all over flags. Livid! Horrific! Also: Shiny. Not a bad heir to Ralph Steadman, eh?

“Scars and Stripes,” Aaron Johnson, Oct 29 – Nov 27, Gallery Poulsen, Copenhagen
