Materia Oscura, a wild book of paintings by Santiago Caruso from Argentina / 192-page hardcover art book, imported
Materia Oscura / Dark Matter is the best and more personal of the pictorial opus of Santiago Caruso, from 2002-2017, complemented with brief writings.
Santiago Caruso (Quilmes, Argentina 1982) cultivates a language of novel and personal rhetoric, although grounded in the symbolist aesthetics. Its production stands out as much for the discursive complexity as for the vigor of the technique. Dedicated to fantastique, his most important illustrated versions are: Jane Eyre (Folio Society); The Chants of Maldoror (Valdemar); The Dunwich Horror, The Bloody Countess, The Monk and the Hangman's Daughter, The King of Yellow (Libros del Zorro Rojo); Materia Oscura, El Eco de mis Muertes (Aguijón de la Noche); The Walls of the Castle, The Booking (Black Labyrinth).
