    Faye Moorhouse: Midnight Gatherings

Illustration: Witchy! Faye Moorhouse's ethereal figures glow in the dark

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Every now and again in a sea of new art and design you come across somebody whose work draws you in without you fully being able to explain why, with all the magnetism of a strange mind and a curious practice. This is something like what I feel about illustrator Faye Moorhouse; her eerily dark images pull me in without my being able to diagnose it. Her Midnight Gatherings series sees bewitching images see pale ethereal figures playing their way to the forefront of a murky abyss, with translucent faces peering dreamily from the bellies and faces of others, with a few crystal balls and moons thrown in for good measure.
