"Son of Ghoul" Self-Portrait, Ed Steck

"Son of Ghoul" self-portrait and central image in Ed Steck's forthcoming autobiographical exploration, "A Place Beyond Shame" (Wonder, 2023), this 4x6" portrait is available in an edition of 30, as Fundraiser for Ed Steck's forthcoming title "A Place Beyond Shame" (Wonder, 2023). "Ed Steck's "A Place Beyond Shame" is a harrowing, original, and endlessly surprising book. Shapeshifting in our hands as we read it, it is as scary and wondrous as the horror films it not only references, but writes into itself. The horror genre has long been a space to explore the terrors of childhood, the way a parent can become a ghoul, to finally confess, in a scream not a whimper, all the secret things we've hidden under the bed. This book reminds me it's in the darkness, not the light, that we finally face ourselves." -- Kate Durbin, Author of Hoarders and E! Entertainment. Ed Steck is the author of "A Place Beyond Shame," "An Interface for a Fractal Landscape," "The Garden," "Mountain Forge Serviceberry Systems," "David Horvitz: Rarely Seen Bas Jan Ader Film," and others. His work has been performed and exhibited nationally and internationally, including for the Brooklyn Rail, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Libraire Yvon Lambert, High Desert Test Sites, and more. He is a recipient of grants from the Fund for Poetry, Pittsburgh Greater Arts Council, and the Pittsburgh Foundation. He lives in Pittsburgh.
