Pamela Wilson is known for paintings of theatrical, sexy, and gothic characters which let the imagination loose to mad narratives of vampires and blood.
Steven Kenny’s contemporary surrealist work turns dark and foreboding, with the artist imagining himself as the devil.
Teresa Oaxaca’s seductive dolls and marionettes also have creepy elements that sneak into the paintings like an infection.
Mark Gleason’s work is reminiscent of the horror stories of Edgar Allen Poe, including black ravens and victims of frightening attacks.
Combining traditional oil painting techniques with surrealist symbolism, Alexandra Manukyan explores masks, wounds, and an emotional landscape of pain, betrayal, and loss.
