Well, these are weird. Brooklyn-based artist Jason Freeny’s work, which we spotted at Beautiful Decay, revolves around the idea of exploring what lies beneath the shiny veneer of pop culture. His sculptures do this a way that’s both conceptually interesting and really rather disconcerting — they’re bold, cartoonish figurines of instantly recognizable toys and characters with their flesh peeled back to reveal the skeleton and organs beneath. The result is somewhere between Disney and Gunther von Hagens. You can see more of Freeny’s work at his website.
