Creepy dolls are just about the scariest thing going. So hideously deformed creepy dolls is just taking the piss. Take a look at American artist Shain Erin’s brood of monstrosities.
I am fascinated with the way that dolls can function simultaneously as contrived objects and living entities. This paradox of an object with a “soul” makes the doll a powerful tool to explore the spiritual predicament of corporeality. In my figures, the struggle to reconcile spirit and flesh is explored through various states of physical miscreation, transformation and dissolution. This monstrous realism reflects an inner landscape of psychological and spiritual struggle with the pain and wonder of existence.
For the sickos out there who enjoy looking at creepy deformed doll things (and there are plenty of you) you can see more of his work here.
