Never Let Your Activism Be Artless: An Interview With Lucien Greaves of The Satanic Temple

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing The Satanic Temple‘s Lucien Greaves about art, activism, and what religion means as a framework rather than a faith. “Recently” isn’t quite right — these questions were written back in February, as you might notice by the news reference in one of them, but we hope you’ll forgive us […]

How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre. I’ve since considered writing about a variety of subjects that interest me, but there’s something else, something much more personal that’s been on my mind for a very long time and this suddenly seemed like a singular opportunity to […]

The Somber Poetry Of Dreams: The Collage Art Of Hidden Velvet

The enigmatic artist known as Hidden Velvet seemed to appear on my radar overnight, and yet, whilst gazing at the somber elegance of her surreal collages, I feel that I have been carrying velvety fragments of her assemblages with me, tucked into the shadowy corners of my heart, for all of my life. A floating cloud softly obscures […]

Haute Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

photo by Muted Fawn Hailed as Austin’s best drag performer by the Austin Chronicles in 2016, Louisanna Purchase is stepping over Sharon Needles’ grave as Kween of Horror Drag (no shade, Sharon, but you’re a little less spooky and a little more sultry now than you were on Drag Race). Louisanna’s Clark Kent is Chad […]

Atmosphere

We shared this when it first came out a year or so ago, but it’s one of those things that I revisit every few months and continue to be hypnotized by.

Beautiful Bones

Available at http://www.SkinLux.org In a beauty-obsessed culture where cosmetics are often seen as frivolous acquisitions of store-branded ideals, where the ultimate intention is serving up superficiality, it is most important to remind ourselves that cosmetics are meant to be fun – because no matter the maquillage, authentic beauty will always be produced from within. Atop […]

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 […]

Still, One More Time With Feeling

Nick Cave’s Skeleton Tree / One More Time With Feeling

We usually think of exploration as positive: adventurers, dreamers, alchemists searching for immortality, identity, and meaning. Nick Cave’s 16th studio album Skeleton Tree and its accompanying documentary One More Time With Feeling are not this kind of exploration. Released back-to-back in early September, they are instead a heart-rending look at the aftermath of a great trauma. “What […]
