Justin Craun at Fredericks & Freiser in Modern Painters

Here are a few things that likely inspire Craun: soft porn, bad or outdated fashion photography. Photoshop accidents, the residual goo of the '80's. These paintings, with their brash neons, awkward borders, occasional polkadots, and coy female protagonists, are aggressively cheesy. But they go beyond an ironic celebration of poor taste, thanks to abstract moments and details that toy with color, pattern, and lumpy surfaces oten, the backgrounds command more attention that Craun's girlish subjects.
