Weirdo Noir: Gothic and Dark Lowbrow Art

Weirdo Noir: Gothic and Dark Lowbrow Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A companion to Jordan's Weirdo Deluxe (2005) this collection presents the quirky, creepy "low brow" art of 24 contemporary artists from the US and Canada, along with interviews. Described as "carnivalesque," in the history of gothic/noir art movements supplied in the introduction, lowbrow art often fuses elements of pop culture with surrealism, resulting in dark satire and surprising juxtaposition. Spooky large-eyed children, steampunk nudes, and a giant cyclops squid dressed as the Pope are among the offerings. Jordan is a foremost authority on the lowbrow art movement and has written for numerous publications. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Like a corpse in a zombie movie, the Goth movement has been resuscitatedstronger, more powerful, and more contagious than ever before. From fashion to music, Goth influences have crept into every area of pop culture, and nowhere is that influence creepier, more fascinating, and more playful than in the art world. Weirdo Noir is the follow-up volume to Weirdo Deluxe, the book that brought the once underground Low Brow art scene to prominence in the public eye. In these pages you'll find the latest and greatest work from 30 Low Brow arists who have embraced the dark side, employing gothic themes in their art. Spooky and witty, Weirdo Noir is destined to become a classic of the millennial Goth aesthetic.
