This reminds me of Vania’s gorgeous Vampire..

In related supernatural news, the only email that was magically rescued from the pre-2006 times after my inbox crashed the other day is an email by Vania from December 3, 2005, saying:

“I am a young Russian artist based in London. I work for Erotic Print Society, Fantagraphics and several Japanese magazines. I love your website and would like to show you my work.”

I can die peacefully now.

It's always a great pleasure for us here at Thee Temple to hear from our artist friends when they release new work and increase their œuvre. And it looks like the turn of the year 2005 to 2006 was a particularly prolific time for some of our all-time favourite WurzelArtists™.

But please see and marvel for yourself:

Most of you have probably seen the announcement in the left sidebar a few weeks ago: Ray is currently showing new works at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in N.Y.C.².

On the occasion of the exhibition, he also updated his portfolio with pieces from the ever-so enchanting "Sweet Victory" series.

Thank you, Ray, I know that I'm not only speaking for myself when I say that I almost died waiting for your new works.

Mark writes:

"I saw you profiled my work, I have a huge new project up: Ça Ira - the illustrations of Roger Waters new opera."

Wow! Thanks for letting me know, Mark. As always, I'm in awe of the psychological depth of your work.

This must be Scott's 138707527 mention on this website and each one of them was well-deserved.

He's back once again with a new series of cute 'n' scary bird sculptures.

"Well Miss Suzanne, I thought I’d drop by and thank you for the traffic… as well as point out that my little beasts now have their very own home at PostLoved."

Hurrah! I'm so happy to hear that your dolls finally have a roof over their shattered little heads. Congrats, Fiona!

It's time to admit it: I'm a Joslinoholic. I can never get enough of Jessica's insidious sculptures and Jared's dreamy paintings. I discovered the other day that there are at least three new creations in Jessica's little Wunderkammer. I'm beginning to think that she's in fact a cloned femme d'artiste from 1920s Paris who never sleeps and bathes in absinthe. No-one could possibly get so much work done and still be so immensely inspired.

Finally, two newly discovered artists also got Thee Official Stamp ov Wurzelpproval®:

Ooooooh! Thank you so much for showing me your work, Vania. I'm deeply impressed by your stunning work and deeply honoured by your email.

"I love your site Suzanne. You have great taste in the dark, the sweet and the historical."

Awww... how flattering, Kris. I love your site and work too. I first stumbled upon your paintings about a year ago on Garden of Sweden and I mentioned your website a couple of times before - so I really thought it was about time to take this opportunity and introduce your work properly.

ADDENDUM

Today is my website's 3rd birthday (Wooo!), but much more importantly, it's the 20th anniversary of Joseph Beuys' death.

I miss you, Joseph...
