Lovecraftian horror at Maison d’Ailleurs

ailleurs1.jpg

A slight return to the Lovecraft art exhibition that’s now running at Maison d’Ailleurs, the museum of science fiction, utopia and extraordinary journeys in Yverdon-Les-Bains, Switzerland. As mentioned last month, An Exhibition of Unspeakable Things: Works inspired by HP Lovecraft’s Commonplace Book includes my large digital work based on the lines “Mirage in time—image of long-vanish’d pre-human city”.

Curator Patrick Gyger has now posted two sets of photos of the exhibition on Flickr. My picture can be seen on this page and for Lovecraft art aficionados the 128pp catalogue should be along soon, featuring 90 illustrations and original fiction by Paul Di Filippo, Jeffrey Ford, Lucius Shepard, Norman Spinrad and others.

    Can’t waith for that catalogue and that extensive Lovecraftian art book by Centipede press.

    Speaking of which, I have recently been able to acquire a few issues of the long since out of print magazine, Malefact, edited by a little known artist going by Tom Fuckin’ Crites. His artwork in particular is not specifically Lovecraft related, but often Lovecraftian, in the most sleazy and viscerally depraved while still being artistic, way. Like an alchemical blend of Suehiro Maruo, Harry Clark, classical alchemy artwork, Aztec paintings, and exploitation movie artwork, his work is worth a look if you get a chance.

    Thanks Thom.

    Wiley: Yes, the catalogue for this should be a good one by the looks of things.

    Don’t think I’d come across Tom Crites before but your description seems accurate given the octopus sex picture I just found. Nice b&w work, there’s a good page of examples here:
