Psych-O-Lantern | Yuliya Tsukerman

Brooklyn-based artist Yuliya Tsukerman, best-known for her scrimshaw art on ostrich eggs, has turned her hand to spooky pumpkin art, just in time for Halloween.

 

Tsukerman’s work, titled Psych-o-lantern, recreates the famous shower scene from Hitchcock’s Psycho, and required numerous pumpkins. Over two weeks, she carved three intricate 16x9cm frames on each pumpkin, each scene requiring between two and six hours of work. She illuminated the scenes from behind, in traditional pumpkin style, lighting up the complex designs and showing off the gradients of light and dark, before shooting with her camera and making the 3-minute stop-motion film.
