Amy V Grimm
Catalog of the exhibition: GOTHIC held at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art.

Included are full color images of each artwork, along with artist website, location and artwork description. Enjoy!
Below is the exhibition statement for the open call for art:
Gothic invites submission from artists evincing a peculiar, perverse, idiosyncratic sensitivity, influenced by literature, movies, television and the tabloids, in painting, drawing, sculpture, illustration, fashion, graphic design, animation, photography, video, digital media, computer-based works, installation and performance. OCCCA's museum of the macabre will display supernatural mutations, bizarre curiosities permeated by fantastic and pathological themes.
Gothic is a mix of Medievalism, Romanticism, science fiction, Victoriana, punk, the uncanny, the grotesque, and the erotic, inseparable from despair, fear and rapture. Gothic reveals the shadow within, the skull beneath the skin.
