Hell Bound: New Gothic Art

by Francesca Gavin

Laurence King c/o Chr Bks | June 10, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Hell Bound: New Gothic Art is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.
The first book to focus on new gothic art, Hell Bound highlights a new generation of contemporary artists who are increasingly obsessed with the darker things in life. Illustrators, street artists, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, installation artists, and painters are all reflecting this renewed interest in gothic imagery. Horror has become a more accepted part of everyday life-and art, as always, is a reflection of life. Here death metal, the war on terror and throwaway pop culture meet, feeding the popular fascination for all things gothic. Among the art featured is the iconoclastic work of Ken Kagami, Terence Koh, Ricky Swallow, the photographic collages of Marnie Weber, the drawings of Chloe Piene and Wes Lang, the paintings of Matt Greene and Iris Van Dongen, the outsider punk art of Pure Evil, and the illustrations of French.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing application of an intriguing idea You have to really like the artwork in this book or it's a waste of time. Do not buy it online where you can only see a few examples of the artwork. They are extremely misleading as a guide to the rest which felt like they were a half-hearted attempt to provide what the audience wanted (at best) and at worst were self-indulgent and childish. If the artwork visible on line peaks your interest, take a trip to the store and actually leaf through the book. If you still like it, go for it. Although I have to say the binding sucks and it fell apart after two days - horse glue isn't what it used to be.
