Contemporary Gothic Art

Fifteen chapters, each packed with vibrant images, and pithy descriptions, showcase some of Gothic Art’s favourite themes, from Death to Lovers, Hauntings to Winter, and Lolitas to Lost Boys.

Many images are accompanied by commentaries from the artists, detailing their inspirations and methods, and why certain pieces mean so much to them.

The central feature of the book is a sixteen page spread on favourite Alternative model, Maria Amanda Schaub, including a biography, a selection of her favourite art pieces, and why she loves them so much.

Jessica Dueck is a digital and design artist born in Asuncion, Paraguay, with a German/Canadian father and a Paraguayan mother. She’s the middle of three siblings. She started digital art at 15. Most of the themes and colours she creates come from dreams or nightmares she has, many times after reading a book or watching a film, waking up in the middle of the night to write down what she dreamed before she forgets. She loves to read novels by Christine Feehan. She is also a photographer and dress designer.
