Damn this thing is a beast.
Eric Beltz‘s new masterpiece will be displayed at this years Pulse Fair.
I asked Eric what is what about, and this is what he said…
“It’s a witch’s sabbath/rape-sacrifice in a woodlot. Medicinal and the typical witch’s herbs grow around the tree stumps. Fertility, perversion, humor, horror. The text behind the witches refers to the weedy habit of medicinal and psychoactive plants growing where no one is paying attention and how those spaces where weeds grow are also a place for all kinds of anti-social behavior: Where Every Heresy Sprouts & Is Green. The title at the top is written backwards as a simple obfuscation to create a coded language that isn’t all that coded. Hands between the witches are shadow puppets. Monsters hiding in the floating black trees are different depictions of the mouth to hell which might also be seen here at the vagina dentata as their throats are turned into a vagina/cervix.”
Eric will be showing with Morgan Lehman at Pulse, you have to see this beauty in person. Details after the jump
