Announcement   Canada Post is now up and running again. They have been legislated back to work following about a month of rotating strike action. The strike resulted in some backlogs, and so there may be some shipping delays while things get back to normal. This is frustrating, of course, but beyond my control and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. If you need your piece in a rush please send me a message; I'm happy to ship via UPS or some alternative if you prefer. (Please note that such alternatives are rather more expensive than the Canada Post rates that are reflected in Etsy's calculated shipping settings.)

About

I’m a Canadian dark artist and horror photographer. My work is rather death haunted, I make frequent use of dead animal organs and human remains as subject matter, and my imagery is very much informed by the idea of memento mori (the medieval practice of reflecting on the certainty of death). My imagery has been compared to the works of Joel Peter Witkin, and stems from a lifelong fascination with horror films, death metal, industrial music, transgressive literature, and all things creepy. My practice combines contemporary digital photography techniques with a visual aesthetic primarily influenced by baroque painters such as Pieter Claesz, Francisco Goya, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Hieronymus Bosch, and Theodore Gericault.

There's more information and LOADS more images on my website: www.nealauch.com. If you're looking for a print of an image from my website that is not included in my shop, please feel free to get in touch with me. I'm happy to do custom orders (although note that this may increase shipping times somewhat).

I’m a member of the Shadowood Collective of dark artists, which also includes Clive Barker, Allen Williams, Troy Brooks, Martin Mercer, and Anita Kuntz. My prints were featured in their 2018 group exhibition: Betwixt & Between the Monsters we Dream. My work has been published in print in Propulsion Magazine and Suspira Magazine, and also published online in Cvltartes Magazine and Float Magazine. I have done commissioned work for Grindhouse Press (the publication is forthcoming in 2019). I’ve been interviewed by ND Magazine, the Phoblographer, and Culture Fancier.

    I’m a self-taught artist who adopted photography as a primary creative outlet in 2015, following an unlikely personal trajectory that encompasses death metal, experimental music, transgressive literature, and academic mathematics.
