Honorary mentions-reviews for Serial Killer Culture are in
The Serial Killer Culture documentary has been out a few weeks now (available HERE), and the reviews have been really favorable, with a couple of pretty splendid nods to my segment. Below are a collection of excerpts and links to the standouts.
"....two other artists David Van Gough, whose artwork delves into the deep symbolism of the Manson Murders and graphic artist Sam Hane, who does serial killer-inspired artwork collages in mixed media, are showcased at length showing both the artist’s talents and their intentions behind their artwork. Hearing these artists talk about their own work was a highlight for me, and just as fascinating as the horrific minds that inspired the artwork to begin with."

" Some artists are featured including David Van Gough. His lengthy discourse on a painting he did about Charles Manson is fascinating to say the least. Gough really did his homework on the Manson legacy and wove all kinds of tidbits into one big piece. His reference point was Sharon Tate (he’s a big fan of The Fearless Vampire Killers). This segment was perhaps the most surprising and unique."

"...artists like David Van Gough who is a very talented painter who cites there are some similarities in the Manson Murders and the Black Dahlia Murder case (both cases had murdered women and acts of mutilation for effect)"
As an aside, there was also a rather lovely mention in a recent David Herrle interview, for his tremendous book Sharon Tate and the Daughters of joy, (available HERE)
"...Gough’s necrorealism made me rethink my aversion to so-called macabre art, and he’s become a treasured colleague."
