The mission of Macabre Gallery is to "spread the Dark Art as the new art movement. After years of Pop Art, Contemporary Art, or Minimalist Art, comes the time of the Dark Art. New feelings, new sensations, new emotions, new themes and new artists. Pure art without limit or taboos."
They have a point. We know that Dark Art is a very strong movement in art right now, but is anyone else paying attention? Macabre Gallery is representing over 25 artists at the moment and I noticed they had their first exhibition last March. I'm hoping it will be followed by a second one this year.
Here are a few of the artists they represent. Take a look at the on-line gallery today. It's worth your while.
|Candice Angelini: Rose|
|Olivier de Sagazan: Untitled|
|Oscar Dorian: Creepy Doll|
|Marino Benigna: Ricordo|
|Ed Schaap: Songbird|
|Oscar Olarte: Nueva Era|
There are many beautiful and sometimes disturbing works on the site. Enter with an open mind.
If you're interested in Plague Doctor Masks (and who isn't!), the gallery has a link to a shop that sells them and they're smashing. Check that out too.
