Revelatory Feminine Mysticism: The Art Of Jas Helena

To trace with the eye the sumptuous swells and ornate, swirling shadows of Jas Helena’s art is to be drawn into an evocative world of potent feminine mysticism. Appearing both demonic and divine (or, perhaps neither) against inky Byzantine backdrops, these saints and sirens, shamans and sorceresses beckon and beguile from the canvas; a tilt of an eyebrow or lift of a […]

Memento Mori in Felt: The Art of Lana Crooks

The work of Chicago-based artist Lana Crooks beautifully demonstrates that reminders of our mortality need not be made of bone. So skilled is Crooks with wool, silk, and all manner of tiny found objects, that her delicate textile sculptures, faux anatomical specimens of human and animal skulls, bones, and insects, feel as lifelike as the references […]

Art That Creeps: The Sculptures of Rebecca De Groot

Artist and art teacher Rebecca De Groot creates delightfully sinister works of functional art. From small objects to large tables, her wooden sculptures stand on delicate insectoid legs, each poised to skitter or skulk away the moment their owners aren’t looking. That is, unless they’d rather inch closer. De Groot’s sculptures are primarily made of wood (some […]

The Mindset Of The Macabre: An Interview With Abigail Larson

Chances are if you are a longtime Haute Macabre reader, you require no introduction to the charmingly spooky, gothic art of Abigail Larson. Her eerie illustrations, reminiscent of the gorgeously ghoulish story books and fairy tales that little gothling you never actually had on your shelf as a child (thanks, mom), have no doubt haunted you for years–and […]

Anthropomorphic Delicacies

Rooted in our current ecological crisis, Oakland based artist Crystal Morey creates beautiful anthropomorphic sculptures imbued with poignant emotion for her upcoming exhibit, ‘Delicate Dependancies’ at Modern Eden gallery which opened on October 14. The figures are made in milk- hued porcelain, which give the work a more fragile feel than previous bodies of work, […]

Those Tarot Cards you like are going to come back in style.

Through the darkness of future’s past, The magician longs to see. One chants out between two worlds… “Fire… walk with me.” Last year we featured the work of Arizona-based artist Benjamin Mackey, who treated us to the 22 major arcana of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck recreated using characters and imagery from Twin Peaks. There’s something uncannily apt […]

Crystal Lee Lucas: Through the Dark

Through the Dark

Photographer Crystal Lee Lucas recently released a series of images, “Through the Dark”. “Through the Dark” is a series inspired by moths that fly by night and through the dark towards the light. Ultimately, the moonlight is their compass and navigator but this path can easily become confusing, exhausting and deceiving. Crystal’s works all have […]

Ossuaria

Ossuaria

Ossuaria: A place to house the bones of the dead. Born from a marriage of two great loves of dissection and high fashion, Ossuaria creates wearable art from rearticulated specimens. I was continually captivated by the structures that support the body, and believed they were alluring enough to hold a place outside the skin as well. […]

Sigalit Landau’s Salt Bride

Please welcome our guest blogger Ela Rogers to Haute Macabre! I’ve been following Ela for a bit on Instagram, and she recently posted a haunting image of this series. I contacted her shortly thereafter to see if she would contribute a piece about the project to Haute Macabre, and was so glad when she agreed. […]

Danny van Ryswyk Tender Loving Darkness figurine

Danny van Ryswyk

Danny van Ryswyk has been slowly creeping into my peripheral vision for many months now, and his chilling figures have recently exploded into clear view. His 3D sculptures and digital art find their inspiration in Victorian Memento Mori, and an extraterrestrial experience at an early age influenced his monochromatic palette. Quiet and seemingly innocuous children are […]

Filmed on location at The Convent in Philadelphia, a DIY art commune, by the Between Pictures production company. Music provided by Chelsea […]
