States of Ecstasy 1 by K. Lenore Siner some of whose work may be seen in Witch-Ikon: An Exhibition of Contemporary Witchcraft Imagery at Mortlake & Company, Seattle.

Emily Temple compiles a list of “40 creepy book covers”. A shame that she (or Lithub) can’t also credit more of the artists and designers responsible. Searching titles at ISFDB would turn up many of the missing names.

  1. A shame that she (or Lithub) can’t also credit more of the artists and designers responsible.

    Someone new to introduce to John Holmes’ oeuvre! Hurrah!

  2. John, the Smithsonian American Art Museum here in Wash DC has just started a wonderful exhibition of the work of “light” artist Thomas Wilfred, installations he called ‘Lumia’. It will run here until January. Marvelous stuff. I enclose links to the SAAM and the Yale sites. There is s terrific catalog available. And Yale has a collection for viewing on YouTube.




    My favorite installation is called ‘Multidimensional’ Op 79. (Wilfred literally considered these displays as visual music and instructed that no audio music should accompany them.) It resembles a nebula made not of dust but stained glass. Unfortunately the videos don’t give you a real sense of viewing a mechanism rather than a digital display and you can’t appreciate the depth of field.

  3. Belated thanks for these, Stephen, looks like great stuff. I’ve always liked light art–or art that uses light–so this is just the kind of thing I’d visit myself if I was there. Wilfred sounds familiar, I think he may be one of the pre-psychedelic artists discussed in Rob Chapman’s lengthy study of psychedelia. […] I’ve just checked, and sure enough there’s two pages about Wilfred’s work. No surprise that James Turrell wrote the foreword to the catalogue.
