No artist has captured the eroticism of death and the organic quality of machinery quite like HR Giger. New York's Lomex gallery (86 Walker St # 3, New York, NY 10013) is featuring work from the legendary artist. Running until April 2, HRGNYC features sculptures, prints, and original drawings by Giger spanning his entire career.
On display are photographs from the photoshoot for Debbie Harry's 1981 album KooKoo, concept art for Poltergeist II, and the ornate Harkonnen chair designed for the aborted Alejandro Jodorowsky version of Dune.
Giger's shoot with Debbie Harry also graced the cover of the December 1981 issue of Heavy Metal.
Giger passed away in 2014, though his style remains hauntingly relevant, probing at post-industrial life and latent desires in the mind. As grotesque as his visions are, they've held viewers in thrall for decades with reverberations felt in everything from Prog-Rock to Anime.
