new discovery: Allen Hampton

I was recently introduced to Allen Hampton's art by a good friend of his.  Allen's body of work is diverse, subversive and makes me feel a little uneasy.  His projects range from  sculptural pieces, graffiti, installations to even working with dead pigs and animal blood. 
"untitled (shit rolls down hill...)"; crushed car, metal base plate, wood pallet, dung beetle  (I love that little bug!)
"We're making out in the landfill splashing around knee deep in ash"; mixed media
"I hold your hand in mine, the rest of you is scattered all over."; Mixed media
