Chicago artist Corkey Sinks

Corkey Sinks was mentioned in the previous entry on Chicago's Occult Artists.  Last night I saw some of her work at the MFA Exhibition at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  My eye was caught by the angular candles and a bookshelf (the nerdy part of me instantly noticed a copy of Richard Cavendish's The Black Arts).

From the artist's website

"The research branched into the lives of celebrities, Mia Farrow, Anton LaVey, the Manson Family, Kenneth Anger, the Beatles, Gerald Ford, etc. and the occult, building upon the American-centric imagination of a hidden evil." (From this interview with Stephanie Cristello)

The Graduate Exhibition is open until May 16th.  Visit the site for more information.
