ART THAT CREEPS- GOTHIC FANTASIES AND THE MACABRE IN CONTEMPORARY ART
Highlighting a selection of artists who eschew the cold, minimalist aesthetic that afflicts contemporary art, this book explores the truly sinister, hyper-real, and riotous blend of pop culture, fine art, and surrealism that is Neo-Gothic art. Associated with punk and dark fantasy, yet distinct from both, these risk-taking artists are represented with a selection of hundreds of amazing paintings from the U.S. and European Neo-Gothic scene. Every painting is captioned in detail, many with explanations of the cutting-edge digital media with which they were created.
Book Includes a 10 page spread on Chet Zar, who also has his work on cover.
