We have shown some stunning underwater photography on the site before, but these delicately, darkly staged works by Tomohide Ikeya are some of the most bizarre and wonderful we have seen to date. The Japanese photographer has turned the her hobby of scuba diving into a conceptual body of work.

We aren't normally showing gruesome paintings on this site (okay, sometimes there is a little blood and guts, but not car crash stuff). But when we came across the dark, bloody, accident portraits of Naoki Sasayama, we couldn't help but feel a little intrigued and grossed-out all at the same time.

Wow, what a powerful, dark, twisted series of paintings by self-taught German painter, Ludwig Drahosch.

Our April 2010 subscriber and Dark Arts book cover artist, Marci Washington, returns to Rena Bransten Gallery in San Francisco with For Forever I'll Be Here, featuring a new series of watercolor and gouache paintings. And Marci notes, "If everything goes according to plan there might be a new zine released that night as well." More after the jump . . .
