Hell aka Dark Carnival
mixed media assemblage
Wooden beads; wooden, plaster and papier maché heads; wood elements; black spray paint.
Walking around carnivals, especially at night, always gives me the creeps.
The noise, the crowds, the chaos, the smells, the predatory-looking barkers trying to lure you to their booths ... brings Hieronymus Bosch to mind.
“The mind is its own place, and in it self
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”
John Milton - Paradise Lost
