I have a lot of hair. I think it’s probably one of the first things people notice about me. It’s long, and fluffy, and sometimes if the humidity is right, it so big that it could be doing cartwheels across David Coverdale’s Lamborghini in 1987. It’s also the piece of me that you’re probably going […]
Thanks to long-time HM favorite, artist Corviid, for sending over these stunning shots of the Baphomet outfit she crafted in action!
Get lost inside Dali’s “Archeological Reminiscence of Millet’s ‘Angelus’” in this interactive 360° video from The Dali Museum.
Southeast England-based artist Nora Fok creates exquisite works of wearable textile art that look like they were woven using spider silk. In reality Fok uses her own two hands and a fine nylon microfilament, not a team of highly specialized and unusually cooperative arachnids, but I’m no less amazed by her weaving, knitting, braiding, and knotting achievements.

The Creeping Museum (featured previously at Haute Macabre) is the labor of love conceived between two friends in North Portland, whose mission is to help artists and independent creators give back to their communities by turning their strange and unusual work into tiny pieces of affordable art, for which to support wonderfully worthy causes. Their newest project, The […]
I’m not terribly moved by Valentine’s Day. I’m a hopeless romantic in the right context, but the commercial holiday generally feels pretty hollow and forced to me. Or rather, it did until I found just the right angle from which to approach it. It started as one of those fanciful questions born of woolgathering: What if a sea […]
Months later and I’m still puzzling over Twin Peaks: The Return, trying to put my thoughts about it together into some coherent, conveyable form instead of just staring into the distance, amazed and awed. I want to discuss it and I’ve done so with friends in fits and starts, but there’s just so much process and speculate […]
Cleveland-based artist Scott Radke creates beautifully haunting and utterly unique characters in the form of sculptures and marionettes made of wire, wood, epoxy resin, burlap, and acrylic paint. Some might be quick to describe his characters as otherworldly, but I find them perfectly at home here in this world; it’s just that they inhabit spaces most humans don’t […]
For a dreary stretch of years I lived cut off from friends and family in a miserable realm known to me now as, “that shit-hole of which we do not speak,” (to others, I suppose it is just “New Jersey”.) I led a rather joyless existence during that time, especially during the winters, for I […]
We’re currently wishing we could magic ourselves over to the National Gallery of Victoria where, as part of the NGV Triennial group exhibition, they’re featuring a jaw-dropping installation by Australian hyperrealist sculptor Ron Mueck, his largest work to date. Entitled Mass, the installation is comprised of 100 individual meter-high fiberglass and resin human skull forms that are piled […]
