Ghost of Unborn Children

Now available in my Etsy Shop! Inspired by folk ballads and cautionary tales told to warn its hearer of a danger. The narrative itself describes a sinful taboo or dangerous prohibition The character of the tale disregards the warning and performs the forbidden act. The violator comes to an unpleasant fate, which is frequently related in morbid, grisly detail. Your little ghost comes in a hand numbered wooden coffin. The Devil may care...

Rapsodia Satanica

Rapsodia Satanica, a masterpiece of Italian silent cinema, features film diva Lyda Borelli. She stars as the narcissistic Alba d’Oltrevita, a woman who makes a Faustian pact with the devil in exchange for the promise of eternal youth and the worldly pleasures it unlocks. The most persistent themes punctuating the film are Alba’s narcissism and her sensual manipulation of a thin, diaphanous veil in scenes of seduction, reflection and melancholy. Alba’s hands it is more introspective and eerie than seductive. It evokes the craze for exotic dances (inspired by Isadora Duncan) that swept the stage and screen at the turn of the Century.

Under a Scarlet Moon

The incomparable Drikka of Magdalena Solis contacted me! Their second album, Hesperia is available for Pre-Order. The name of the band, Magdalena Solis, refers to the priestess of an obscure Mexican blood cult of the 1960s. "Hesperia" could be the soundtrack of this cult.

Dark Dark Dark

coming soon!

available soon in my Etsy shop...ghosts of unborn children.

Did you hear me crying in the night that lasts forever?
Did you see me reaching out from Never Never Land?
The kingdom of the blind, the damned; a bitter man; an also-ran.
The ghosts of unborn children stretch their hands and clutch at nothing...
Preconceived. Part of the plan that makes no sense and casts no shadow, no
Reflection in your mirror. Hiding right beneath your eyes... but so
Difficult to find, you gave up long before you started. What I'd give to
Be alive for just one second... ~ Legendary Pink Dots

Unicorn Travesties

"First born unicorn, hardcore soft porn, dream of Californication" Anthony Kiedis

Unicorn Travesties by Coral Silverman

"In my Unicorn Travesties series I seek to explore the disregard we currently hold for the environment in the context of historical European iconography. Taking the medieval Unicorn Tapestries as my source, I have re-imagined their scenes as set within the modern world. Visually, I am very interested in the flat floral patterning that makes up the backgrounds of some of the tapestries. In many of my pieces I extract floral elements from their “mille fleur” backgrounds, subtly inserting within the works various pieces of urban refuse, such as cigarette butts, soda cans, smashed televisions, etc. I am using it as an ironic metaphor for the American way of life— a comment on our consumption, our disposable way of living, and ultimately our implication in the destruction of the environment."

American Spirits: Not Healthy and Not Native. Smokes for hipsters in headdresses! Another fine example of Native appropriation. Native Americans, despite the Tribal sovereignty that is supposed uphold their taxed exempt status, are being taxed on cigarettes to pay the American deficit!

"But what's left on earth that I haven't tried?" Prince Lír demanded. "I have swum four rivers, each in full flood and some more than a mile wide. I have climbed seven mountains never before climbed, slept three nights in the march of the Hanged Men, and walked alive out of that forest where the flowers burn your eyes and the nightingales sing poison. I have ended my betrothal to the princess I had agreed to marry — and if you don't think that was a heroic deed, you don't know her mother. I have vanquished exactly fifteen black knights, waiting by the ford in their black pavillion, challenging all who came to cross. And I've long since lost count of the witches in the thorny woods, the giants, the demons disguised as damsels, the glass hills, the fatal riddles, and terrible tasks; the magic apples, rings, lamps, potions, swords, cloaks, boots, neckties, and nightcaps. Not to mention the winged horses, the basillisks and sea serpents, and all the rest of the livestock." from The Last Unicorn
