Natalya Hughes and the Insane Clown Posse

Natalya Hughes, 'Violent Ubu's Magic Miracles', giclée print, 90 x 140cm, 2010

When done well, Leg of Lamb loves a bit of an art/pop culture mash-up, so it was exciting to discover the work above by Melbourne-based painter Natalya Hughes.  In Violent Ubu’s Magic Miracles, Hughes’ decorative wallpaper-like composition includes the floating head of Violent J, one half of one of America’s most terrible bands, the evangelical Insane Clown Posse.  Hughes has obviously studied the video that accompanied their single Miracles (a video/song combo perversely compelling in its sheer awfulness) and has included in her work a number of magnets for us to marvel at.  All will be revealed by watching the video below.  And yes, these guys are for real
