MANSON-the Haunting of the American Madonna


From Aleister Crowley to Charles Manson, Liverpool to LA, MAN/SON explores an artistic evocation of America’s occult underbelly.

Taking cues from the bloody epithet’s left at the crime scenes, and associated key phrases, the series draws upon Van Gough’s  year-long research into what he terms as sinister architecture, conspiracy, clandestine rituals, magic symbols and the tragic muse-Sharon Tate, recapitulated as the American Madonna and child.

Man/Son and the Haunting of the American Madonna opened at Hyaena Gallery  and was featured in John Borowski’s documentary-Serial Killer Culture.
