The true magick of art is the discovery of the sublime within the mundane, the beautiful within the grotesque, the light within the darkness and all those reversed.


Andy Paciorek ~ imagery & words:

Drawn mainly to the worlds of myth, folklore, symbolism, decadence, curiosa, anomaly, dark romanticism and otherworldly experience, and fascinated both by the beautiful and the grotesque and the twilight threshold consciousness where these boundaries blur. The mist-gates, edges and luminal zones where nature borders supernatural and daydreams and nightmares cross paths are of great inspiration.

Andy has produced work for numerous outlets including Harper-Collins and Bizarre.
