Visionary apocalyptic painter Joe Coleman's oeuvre explores in excruciating detail the artist's fascination with the junctions between saint and sinner, sacred and profane, holy and horrifying. Using a single-hair brush and jeweller's magnifying lenses, Coleman packs his canvases with hallucinatory detail. Coleman's subjects range from John Dillinger and P.T. Barnum to outsider artist Henry Darger and Gangs of New York-era mass-murderer Albert Hicks.
