The Art of Erland Mørk

by Ghastly McNasty

Norwegian artist Erlend Mørk uses photography as his medium to create psychologically disturbing images. Born November 1, 1983 he describes his work as ‘manipulated dark and surrealistic photography’.

My works are symbolic representations of my views and reflections about these. The creatures in my works are as such mad, lost or isolated, in search of some absolute among the relative, trying to know an objective truth, or just become complete nihilists.

Take a look at some of his work below.

The recent tragic bombings and shootings that took place in Norway came as a huge shock that united many Norwegians in grief. It will be interesting to see how the events of 22nd July will affect the country, especially Norway’s artistic output which will be reflective of the mood of it’s people.

For dark artists like Erland you have to wonder if his work will move away from disturbing visual imagery or if he will delve deeper in to the macarbe. When true horror presents itself in real life, complete with stark images of bodies, eye witness accounts of truly terrifying moments, all played over and over by the media on TV, will the public’s appetite for fantasy horror be diminished or will it grow?
