Serial Thriller

im in the middle of watching ‘house of 1000 corpses’ im streaming through stagevu-i have wanted to watch it for ever, and overjoyed i found it.

i have googled many things today-since watching the film, various serial killers as mentioned in the film such as Albert Fish. i would like to maybe paint a few, or look into art based on this subject. i have also discovered an art movement from serial killers who make art in prison. maybe i could look into this further.

Wikipedia says on Serial killer art-
Serial killer art is defined as artwork created by serial killers while in prison. Often, this process is used as a therapy device, or for further understanding a particularly disturbed psyche, while in other instances it is purely a method of time spanning entertainment for imprisoned individuals. The artists usually vary dramatically in skill and themes covered.

John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez, and Henry Lee Lucas are a few of the better known American serial killer artists. Perry Smith, the mass murderer known from Truman Capote‘s famous nonfiction work In Cold Blood, was also a prolific artist.

anyway the film visuals are great, im enjoying the xpro style bright colours and split screen…very b movie-esque come teen horror. i love how creepy the main character is black guy painted up to look like some kind of uncle sam circus clown, with a strong black american voice.
i also googled deformed babies, and started to plan a painting series, as well as more pathology/crime scene/autopsy pics looking at Dumas of course.

ive reached halfway with my tea canvas and unsure wether to complete the space, sewing more flags to overspill the canvas or stop with the flags nicely staying within the frame. for this i am referencing Fluxus art-dieter roth mainly, as he married an Icelander and lived and worked here when alive.

listening to-new post rock bands that i youtubed today
