5.0 out of 5 stars a dark delight, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Art That Creeps (Hardcover)
As an introduction to the strange, dark and macabre world of 'lowbrow' and gothic art, this book is an excellent example. Gathered within these pages is a veritable cornucopia of some of the very best that this genre has to offer. Korero books have to be congratulated on publishing this volume in a world often dominated by more contemporary 'highbrow' artists.
In here we have the bleak & beautiful worlds and denizens of Annie Bertram's photgraphy, the sculpted, tattooed & minutely detailed dolls of Marina Bychkova, Nicoletta Ceccoli's dwellers in a weird, dreamlike toyland, the surreal landscapes and distorted figures of Naoto Hattori, Aunia Kahn's sinister and glamorous femme fatales, the sepia-toned nightmarishly haunting photography of John Santerineross, Natalie Shau's richly coloured dark fairytale characters and David Stoupakis' characters that should belong only in our strangest dreams . . . . !
There are a host of others worthy of mention too; Chet Zar, Leslie Ditto, Madeline von Foerster and Melissa Foreman to name a few more. This book really is worth every penny, and, as I said before, a fine intro to a world of art that needs to be appreciated more!
The book itself: Beautifully bound and printed; as much care has gone into this as has the selection of contents.
This will hopefully lead you to find more about the genre - it got me hooked!
