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.
Private collection, London
Minor paint wear near Snoopy's face; otherwise no apparent condition issues.
