A Hornet Tests my Sculptured Skin: Horror as Art

Darling readers, would I send you off to face your weekend without a delicious treat to occupy your dreams?  Of course I wouldn’t.  I have been marveling of late over a few artists that seem to have a special way of bringing nightmares to life, transmuting horror into art: macabre, affecting, beautiful.  Today’s artist is Danielle Tunstall, who captures “visual comments on life and the human species” through photographs that are both hauntingly dark and exquisitely twisted.  Enjoy, darlings…and try to sleep well, won’t you?
