Yule Lads for Pagan Winter.

Here's my piece for recent, amazing group show Pagan Winter at Grindcore House in Philadelphia. The show hangs thru. January 2014 and features art from some truly astounding artists (your's truly not included). The show is themed around pagan winter festival ritual and characters. The piece here features Iceland's Yule Lads, a group of 13 conniving and mischievous fellas who, preceding the change into winter, keep tabs on the rotten kids of Iceland and harass them in accordance of their personalities: sometimes stealing and eating candles sometimes harassing sheep sometimes simply peeeeepimg in on them. If kids have been truly rotten they leave potatoes in their shoes. In any case, here's my take on all 13 of these creeps surrounded by their trappings and items of desire.
