God Has Become Cancer:
Damien Hirst, Religion, & Death

Damien Hirst

Jonathan Yeo, Portrait of Damien Hirst, 2013

3,374 words

For the radical Right the issue of contemporary art is something of a non-starter. The past century or so of developments in the fine arts have been dominated by American (and often Jewish) theoreticians who have fashioned a sensibility wherein anything that smacks of European tradition is automatically verboten, unless it can be refracted through a distorting lens of ironic detachment or disinheritance.  Read more …

The Paintings of Harold Arthur McNeill

Harold Arthur McNeill and his familiar Tharsis

448 words

Harold Arthur McNeill, born February 15th 1960, is an artist, poet, designer, and bookbinder living in Washington state. I first encountered his work in 2002 on the cover of the limited hardcover edition of Julius Evola’s Men Among the Ruins (Waterbury Center, Vt.: Dominion Press, 2002).

The Lovecraftian Art of Harold Arthur McNeill

155 words

H. P. Lovecraft is not just an inspiration to writers but also to visual artists who wish to translate his uncanny and sometimes elusive descriptions into visible realities. Harold Arthur McNeill is one of my favorite Lovecraftian artists. This portfolio of his paintings, drawings, sculptures, graphics, and book-bindings will show you why.

Mr. McNeill makes his living from his art, so if you like his work, please contact him at [email protected] to arrange a purchase or a commission.  Read more …
