i know i've posted about alison scarpulla before, but her work really speaks to me. it's haunting, visceral, still, imbued with a dark magic, a shrouded beauty. you can nearly feel a kind of tesla electricity captured within them....there is something particularly potent in these images for me as alison is also a native long islander ( the place where i believe many of these images occur).
it's a strange place, that island. i simultaneously abhor and love it, which are the exact same qualities i find myself attracted to in art, literature and objects. . . .
