How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility – One Year Later

It’s Pride Month and nearly a year has passed since my essay, “How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility,” was first published here on Haute Macabre. So lately I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on that particular piece of writing which, to my surprise and subsequent joy, ended up helping more people than myself […]

Unfolding A Daydream: The Art Of Amy Earles

One might experience a peculiar frisson of nostalgia while gazing at the wistful, winsome subjects of  artist Amy Earle’s earlier works. Reminiscent of  the illustrated plates in a mysterious storybook, dusty and hidden far back in grandmother’s closet and tucked the soft folds of a moth-eaten antique quilt; a discovery stumbled upon one rainy afternoon while the […]

  There’s a Morbid Anatomy-shaped hole in our hearts. Last year, on December 18th, the Morbid Anatomy Museum first announced that they would be closing their doors. Shortly thereafter the museum was beautifully eulogized by Evan Michelson. Now we here at Haute Macabre would like to raise a glass in tribute to a singular institution that was dear to […]

The Skeleton Rocker: A Cozy Reminder of Our Mortality

Until this moment I had no idea that my house has been desperately missing a skeleton rocking chair. Modeled after a mid 19th century Russian chair, these beautiful, elaborately hand-carved rockers were made in the US in the 20th century, most likely during the 1930s. With an estimated auction value of $2,500 to $3,5oo, this isn’t the most […]

Tender, Tragic Treasures: An exclusive peek at Sara Deck’s “Reclaimed Shadows”
