Celebrating Fears

Not sure why Halloween has such popularity, I am delighted that it is so visual. It is dramatic. It also steps out of restrained good behavior. The macabre becomes mainstream! Perhaps its greatest power is to make what is frightening humorous. Goblins and ghosts are welcomed! When else could my neighbor legitimately place tombstones and dead bodies around their yards?

Facing fears is usually a good idea. So I asked myself: what is scary to me? Being in a dark woods where the trees come alive and threaten to entangle. They all look alike. The only refuge is a haunted house, which seems more threatening than the forest. Hopefully the nightmare has a happy ending.

Haunted Escape photo collage by Liane Sebastian

This collage expresses that there are many ways to get lost and to perceive threats. Nightmares may be different, but they all have the same results. In this tangle of trees, I find balance in an unsettling composition, a solution in “Haunted Escape.” I hope you enjoy it. And I hope that you face your fears aesthetically! —always inspired, Liane
