New Greg Crewdson work

Many of you will already be familiar with Greg Crewdson's work - his dramatically stage-lit scenes of small town America, often with a B-movie sci-fi feel to them:

However, an exhibition of his latest work is currently on display at the White Cube Gallery, Mason's Yard  (free entry, until 8th Jan 2011).

In a fascinating twist on his usual work, Crewdson has turned to an actual film studio in Rome, exploring the uncanny, crumbling sets which mix an array of histories.  It felt like something of a reversal - instead of introducing artifice into the real world, Crewdson instead captures natural light in an artificial setting, with astonishing results.

Well worth a visit.
