Eerie Art

Whilst browsing through Sci-Fi-O-Rama a couple of days ago, I found Simen Johan
A photographer/artist hailing from Sweden, his exhibitions use photographs of a variety of animals set against bleak and desolate landscapes, giving a strange and creepy atmosphere. Along with these images are strange and surreal 'sculptures', (I would call them taxidermy, but that doesn't quite seem right), creatures that look more like they belong withing a nightmare or horror movie.
They remind me of creatures that are conjured up in the dead of night by a childs imagination.
Beautifully haunting.

from exhibition Until the Kingdom Comes 2204-2009
