Halloween Special: Tyler Thacker

Moving from the bedroom to airplanes, bed bugs have found a new home. A cheaper alternative to sugar, high fructose corn syrup increases the risk of fatty liver disease, obesity, inflammation, and diabetes. Tyler Thacker’s foray into hyper-realism offers an insidious snapshot of the hyper-ominous afterglow of a contemporary zeitgeist’s shelf-life in a capitalist system. Halloween is always a little frightening, sure, but what’s truly terrifying are the reverberating specters of consumers navigating globalization: aka each one of US! Itching, scratching and gouging our way toward an uncertain future.

Halloween Special: Olga Abeleva

Is that a monster under my bed, or is it me? Olga Abeleva’s characters, while verging on fantasy, are relatable. They occupy quotidian planes in moments that seem to exist in the psychic space that prefaces a disaster—flames licking the edges of a curtain; a scorned lover chain smoking woefully outside, plotting revenge; a cockroach scuttling toward an unassuming hand; a knife dancing between flesh. Almost as if each painting is a window into the same world, these characters coexist, unaware of the inevitable tragedy doomed to befall them. Sounds pretty scary, right? What’s scarier is thinking about all the ways in which you, dear reader, are unaware of the doom that’s waiting for you—just around the corner! – Rebecca Storm

Halloween Special: Emily Mae Smith

A hot bullet sears through a glistening ice cube gouging out a peephole through which can be seen an alluring, anthropomorphic broom. This is the nightmare painted by Brooklyn-based artist Emily Mae Smith. Smith seems haunted by this broom, repeatedly painting it into different contemplative landscapes, as if she can’t escape it.
