Artist Greg Edwards @ Day’s Coffee

Through May 31

Day’s Coffee
1420 Bardstown Road

Titillating at best, offensive at worst, Greg Edwards’s multimedia paintings are meant to provoke. Saving the X-rated works for less public spaces, the current show at Day’s Coffee is still edgy. Using dark lines and bold colors, even the PG pieces featuring comedian Sarah Silverman draw a sensual quality. But the tongue-in-cheek images of a person in a gimp mask — a metaphor for our “chained down” lives — and one commenting on the erotic nature of a breast exam make his work more than just sensational. Edwards’s raw style and aggressive subject matter fit well with his DIY attitude. Forgoing art school and typical gallery settings, this annual Unfair participant keeps his eyes on the fringe. —Erica Lawson
