I'd highly recommend checking out Timothy Siciliano's Dongguan Highways Hot Pink, up through October 9th at Catherine Person Gallery. Here's a quote from my recommendation for Visual Art Source.
Siciliano deftly combines vintage advertising, Eastern mythology and sexual taboos, resulting in a colorful orgy of old and new. His use of pink effectively gelds the grotesque imagery and renders it impotent. Most paintings are anchored by a target, the perfect symbol to act as both a reference point in a rapidly changing society and as a Western icon for consumerism.
