Jasper Goodall’s solo gallery show Poster Girl is a commentary on the fine line between fetishism, fantasy and reality, expressed through shiny latex, dripping goo and acrylic body-masking cutouts.  The titles of his prints — Bad Bambi, Pink Polish, Crude Oil, Medusa, Tigress and Evil Mickey — entice our curiosity and give us an inkling of what is about to come.
