GIGER RIP

H. R. Giger, 1940 - 2014

Work No. 250, Li I, 1974. Collotype, 70x100cm.

Work No. 305, Safari, 1973-76. Acrylic on paper/wood, 100x70cm.

I was going to try and put a full-blown biographical essay in here but I don't think I will - at risk of repeating information already available across the internet by now. I'm sure everyone knows who H. R. Giger was, and his works - introduced to most of us via LP sleeves like Brain Salad Surgery, To Mega Therion and the film Alien need little introduction. Above images were scanned from a Taschen posterbook I've had since I was at school. If Safari looks as though it was stuck to a bedroom wall for a decade, it's because it was.
