Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Ray Caesar updates his oeuvre

Whenever Ray Caesar updates his website with new works it feels like Christmas, Easter and Hallowe'en together here at Wurzeltod HQ. Above all if tentacles, corsets and fans are involved.

After all, Ray is something like the Ãœbervater of this blog and I always thought that if there's an image out there that could sum up the whole point of Wurzeltodâ„¢ - if there really is one - it'd be Ray's Merchant of Dreams.

So thank you, Ray, for continuing to feed our hungry eyes with that fragile noblesse and eerie beauty that only you can give us.

    The pic with the meat peeling out of the back and forming into things, I'm speechless. Such an incredibly bizarre image.

    Thank you very much for your suggestion. Yes, I'm indeed familiar with Ryden's and Dzama's works. As a matter of fact, I've only just ordered Ryden's "Creatrix" notecard set from Gorey Details. Yay!

    Lucky you! They're one of my randomizing background patterns. Some readers have been known to refresh 19834773685 times to get to see them. ;)

    (Oh, and btw, those cards look of course MUCH better in reality. I don't know why they chose such a blurred scan for the product description.)

    I suppose it could be possible to cut off part of the body, say an arm from the eblow down, preserve it through plastination, pull it apart into something interesting looking, then attach it back on surgically and or mechanically.

    Hehe. I'm beginning to suspect that you're a ghostwriter for BME. ;)
