Halloween fancy dress for you and your home

Posted on October 29, 2015

It’s not a secret that at Curious Duke we really love Halloween, how could we resist a chance for fancy dress and full on decoration? So to help you on your way to creepy darkness and pumpkin filled parties this weekend, we have selected a few of our artists work to induce ghoulish cries and Halloween spirit.
Unsurprisingly we have more than our fair share of artists to include here, so I have cut down our selection to:
Halloween costume of choice, or a friend for your walls.
24K Gold leaf Polaroid collage transparency
Limited edition of 50

If only I could wake up looking this glam, with flowers woven through my hair, then I could be ready for Halloween every day.

I will hand over to MFF to tell you about this one:
” We have a continuing theme at MFF where we play with the idea of seeing the inner person by cutting through the layers of flesh and bone to ‘reveal’ the person inside. We represent these attributes through the use of colours and patterns.??
This skull is a representation of the devil, the snake in the tree of knowledge. The wasps are only an artistic indulgence as I have a particular abhorrence for the vile looking creatures.”
Giclee print on Hahnemuhle German Etching paper 300gsm
£70 unframed
Forget your average cat outfit this year; you want a full ruff of velvety roses to go around your leopard print face paint.  Alternatively, add a touch of luxury to you home with Knight’s baroque inspired Ocelot.

Honestly, if you haven’t been inspired or add Halloween to your life on a more permanent basis, or decided on your outfit for the weekend then Halloween is not meant for you.
Liked this? Kate Knight will take us through the baroque twist and turns in her work tomorrow.
