"Southern Gothic" by Maggie Taylor

Last year, I had the pleasure of coming across Maggie Taylor's work in a gallery in Ybor City, Florida. While most of my memories of that trip lie under a heavy fog of absinthe, Taylor's images seared themselves into my consciousness. Recently, I have begun re-discovering "southern gothic" literature and film (Faulkner's AS I LAY DYING and SKELETON KEY being among my favorites), and this particular work from Smith came to mind. Visit the artist's web page for more.
