Clive Barker, Artist
Best known as a horror writer and for his movie Hellraiser, Clive Barker is also an artist. Last Friday an exhibition of his work opened at the Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago: Clive Barker - Apocalypses: Paintings and Works on Paper. At his best, Barker reminds me of Aubrey Beardsley; but I wouldn't say this was Barker at his best. Click the title link for an online gallery of his pictures on show. The exhibition continues until 16 February 2008.
