When I first saw Gregory Jacobsen’s work, I wasn’t sure whether to be enthralled or disgusted. I think I was somewhere in between, and still am. His imagery is quite shocking, with grotesque, fleshy figures in all sorts of weird sexual poses and scenarios. But if you look past this and concentrate on the artwork itself, you’ll see a highly technical and extremely talented artist who has an amazing eye for colour and detail. Just don’t show the kids.
