Life tends to get spookier around Halloween, allowing us to indulge a little more in the superstitions surrounding its supernatural history. With countless horror films being broadcasted throughout the month of October, not to mention the decorative ghosts, gory masks, and witches galore, it seems a safer to avoid the cracks in the sidewalk, black cats, and ladders at all costs (we've all learned from Candy Man). However, as we start afresh in November, with all evil spirits safely banished away and only candy left behind, perhaps these superstitions can be embraced with the intervention of art, their ghoulish nature broken down on canvas.

Not so scary after all.
