artist of the week


Ben Goosens

Goosens images give me a knot deep in my stomach, they make me feel both frightened and curious. His art aches with mystery and loneliness.

Goosens has a background in art direction and this really stands out in his work as he is so easily able to evoke emotion. Goosens hails from Belgium and uses his skills in professional photography to create montages that spike wonderment in the audience.

This work reminds me of the main reason I love surrealist art: There is raw beauty in the darkest of places.

Purity Ring are a Canadian electronic duo. Their sound is eerie and unique and their lyrics have a surrealist element. Listening to Purity Ring paints the strangest picture in your mind. The duo teamed up with the ever great Jon Hopkins to bring us Breathe This Air (feat Purity Ring)...listen below and be transported somewhere else


Ghost Girl's favourite Purity Ring song is Belispeak. It also has a particularly weird and haunting video which is just below for your viewing pleasure. Directed by Brewer.

inside insidious Chapter 3

 

The Insidious  franchise has helped to movie the horror movie industry away from tired re-makes and into frightening and raw original material. Director James Wan uses low budget techniques to create an eery atmosphere with high box office results. 

I don't know about you but Insidious 2 left me spooked and reeling for more from the twisted mind of Wan, well you and I are in luck! This very exciting instalment is a prequel set before the Lambert family ever started fearing the dead and reveals how Elsie Rainer (everyones favourite psychic) began to use her ability.

So this movie is out on May 29th 2015...gives us just enough time to psych ourselves up for a nail biting scare...try not to loose your popcorn, that stuff is expensive!

Shichinohe Masaru

Masaru is a Japanese surrealist artist who was born in Japan in 1959. He is also known as "Maboroshi" which is the Japanese for ghost. Take a peek into his weird and wonderful world...




Masaru's world is dreamlike and haunting, bending reality into shapes that quite simply stick with you for a long time after encountering them. His paintings present us with the innocence of children and animals alike yet are shrouded in a potent melancholy.

Spooky Snaps

For as long as we have had the means to do so we have been trying to capture the supernatural on camera. Not only would doing this make you super rich but it would also be something to stuff under the noses of those non-believers who looked at you a little weird when you said you were a ghost hunter! Let's take a look at some examples...it up to you whether you think they are the real deal or not!


The brown lady is one of the most famous ghost photos ever taken. The ghost is thought to be Lady Dorothy Townshend wife of Charles Townshend (2nd Viscount of Raynham)

The photo was taken by Captain Provand and Indre Shira in 1936. This is what happened, according to Shira:

“Captain Provand took one photograph while I flashed the light. He was focusing for another exposure; I was standing by his side just behind the camera with the flashlight pistol in my hand, looking directly up the staircase. All at once I detected an ethereal veiled form coming slowly down the stairs. Rather excitedly, I called out sharply: ‘Quick, quick, there’s something.’ I pressed the trigger of the flashlight pistol. After the flash and on closing the shutter, Captain Provand removed the focusing cloth from his head and turning to me said: ‘What’s all the excitement about?’”

What do you think??

In 1966 retired clergyman Rev. Ralph Hardy took a picture of The Tulip Staircase in the Queen’s House section of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England...what he developed was remarkably frightening. Experts say that this image has not been tampered with in any way....and you can always trust a Reverend right?
