Description

Matt Gondek literally deconstructs pop culture icons to reveal utter mayhem and destruction beneath. Here the subject is Snoopy; the instantly recognizable cartoon dog’s flesh has melted away to expose skull and bone. The resultant work juxtaposes the sunny, childlike innocence of the “Peanuts” world with gruesome imagery.
