Top Five: Aug. 9, 2018. The Most Twisted Artists in Texas

by Glasstire August 8, 2018

Christina Rees and guest editor Neil Fauerso run down the most twisted artists in Texas, according to criteria set forth by Fauerso in his Glasstire essay The Twisted Manifesto: Rules for Making Art in End Times.

“There’s a great value in having confrontational and shocking and sleazy things. It helps you wake up.”

“These artists score five out of five on Neil’s twisted metric. These are some of my very favorite artists in Texas, by the way.”

Machine-Gun Nose was actually made in 2007, but was not posted to Vimeo until 2009, not that it really matters. Love you Glasstire!
