Haunted Ground: a new art series by Erika Jane Mallette

I’m a self taught artist out of Austin, Texas. My Haunted Ground series touches on addiction and destructive self behavior that we all can relate to in one way or the other. But it’s our job to turn our ugly side into something beautiful, such as in the case of my subjects. Johnny Cash’s addictions were well known, as were Edgar Allan Poe’s. But through their addictions, they wrote and cultivated it into something haunting and splendid and that have truly stood the test of time.
