Portraits of Jason - Page 2

Hairy Eyeball: A lesser-known filmic Jason lives in black-and-white in Tim Roseborough's Portrait of Jason II: Return of the B*tch, while Sean McFarland's new show refracts California color and, at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, "Black Sabbath" spotlights black artists' relationship to Jewish music

From Tim Roseborough's Portrait of Jason II: Return of the B*tch

Radiohead fans know Stanley Donwood as the go-to cover artist and frequent artistic collaborator for the British rock group's albums from The Bends onward. "Over Normal," Donwood's first stateside solo exhibit, features many of the painter's colorful "word map" canvases, whose wavy, grid-like structures (based on the street layouts of major world cities) are filled in with politically resonant and controversially juxtaposed words (see the cover for 2003's Hail to the Thief).
