What is Velvet Buzzsaw about?

In Los Angeles, art critic Morf Vandewalt (Jake Gyllenhaal) attends an art exhibition alongside his friend Josephina (Zawe Ashton), who works for Rhodora Haze (Rene Russo), owner of the Haze Gallery and formerly a member of the rock band Velvet Buzzsaw. Unfulfilled in his love life with his boyfriend, Ed (Sedale Threatt Jr.), Morf starts a sexual relationship with Josephina. Returning to Los Angeles, Josephina finds a dead man named Vetril Dease (Alan Mandell) in her apartment building and enters his home to discover myriad paintings, some of which are partially destroyed.
Josephina steals the paintings to show Morf and Rhodora, who become fascinated with Dease. Rhodora decides to exhibit several of his pieces in her gallery, where they're an instant success. The artworks enchant Gretchen (Toni Collette), Morf's art curator friend, and Piers (John Malkovich), a former artist for the Haze Gallery. Rhodora keeps most of the paintings, and Morf and Josephina keep a small portion each.
To ensure the rarity of the paintings, Rhodora orders gallery worker Bryson (Billy Magnussen) to transport half of them to storage. En route, a painting catches fire from his cigarette ash and burns him, causing him to crash into a gas station. After he heads inside to clean the burns, Bryson is attacked by a painting of grease monkeys fixing a car and goes missing.
Researching Dease, Morf discovers he suffered from a troubled and abusive childhood that culminated in the murder of his father and a growing mental illness that permeates his works. Jon Dondon (Tom Sturridge), a rival art gallery owner, has hired an investigator to uncover the same story. He attempts to reveal Dease's story to the press but is murdered when a mysterious hand hangs him by his scarf. Coco (Natalia Dyer), Rhodora's former assistant who had just begun working for Jon, discovers his body. Morf sees a hand in a Dease painting suddenly move, which unsettles him, and he later discovers that Dease used blood in his paintings.
