I recently figured out that I absolutely love dark, Gothic stuff, be it art, TV or music.
The exact name of this peculiar genre I don't know, but when I find examples of it I lap it up. It's solemn in tone and touches frequently on death, darkness and the Unknown. The kind of thing that makes you feel alone, desperately alone. Wandering alone through a deserted field in the cold and rain towards the light, the single, lone house on the hill containing the single, lone farmer. There's something comfy in that for me.
Anyway, here are some examples/recommendations:Over the Garden Wall
is the best example in TV or cartoons. I've watched it at least three times.
This album I picked up - Stuck on a Sunday
. Webm related.
This kind of art: https://art.vniz.net/en/
- including some by Zdzislaw Beksiński, which has been posted here.
Does anyone else like this macabre art? Does anyone have any recommendations?
