The 'Tears of the Crocodile' Exhibit

Artist Liz McGrath has a very serious knack for the grotesque and the macabre. This exhibit is called "Tears of the Crocodile," and it represents her first exhibition in Spain.

McGrath's work is dark, morbid, bizarre, surreal, and very creepy but at the same time she manages to infuse her dioramas, phantasmagorical creations, and faux taxidermy a certain humanity. I'm talking about a horror-movie type of humanity, as when you feel sad for Frankenstein when he is attacked by the mob.

'Tears of the Crocodile,' runs through November 23 at the Iguapop Gallery in Barcelona.
