Hiroshi Shafer has a show of strange, lewd, rubbery, resin-y works — exploding bosoms and chopped-up horses — that are super reminiscent of Takashi Murakami's pop figures only, we hazard to say, a little lovelier. Look at these toes! See more at English Kills Art Gallery, opening tomorrow through October 19.
