These wonderfully dark illustrations by Laura Geurten have a playful and quick folk art aesthetic that has a subtlety of shuddering and detailed line work that reminds us of Goya's Disasters of War. Although not nearly as graphically realistic or horrifying as Goya in subject matter or style, Geurten playfully dances around what is psychologically deep and consuming with distorted figures and quivering forms that at times verge upon violent and malicious, but never quite revealing such trembling terrors so literally. It's the subtlety that we love.
