Dennis Carlsson gives beloved pop culture cartoon characters a horror makeover.
I particularly love the way he does teeth and shining viscera.
Which cartoon would you like to see Carlsson reimagine?
Check out the gorgeous collage work of Ben Lewis Giles.
His sources range from vintage pulp art to fine art, and everything in between. Biology textbooks, nature picture books, the art of folklore and Americana…
Nature, metamorphosis, light, colour, collage,collaboration, juxtaposition, repetition, excitement, evolution, manipulation,music, television, improvisation, participation and seduction are all components in my practice.
Inge Vandormael sticks to a simple color palette; black, white, red and silver for drawings, muted autumnal tones for watercolor. But the symbolism in her work is profound.
Much of her older work was inspired by Eastern religion, myth and philosophy. Clearly influenced by nature and the beautiful structure within the ephemeral cycles of life and death, her newer works delve into alchemical and sacred geometry.
Years ago, I saved this lovely little box of skeletons by Spanish artist ARYZ, not knowing who the artist was (neither did Google image search at the time).
I eventually stumbled upon the image again, properly credited, which allowed me to delve into his small scale prints and street art, all of which I was quite fond.
He paints giant murals, often on the sides of abandoned factories where he can have time to work undisturbed. Despite the high volume of skeletons and the innards of various creatures, his work has a kind of sweetness to it at times.
These images remind me of the subtle ties that bind. Her subjects are bound only by the finest gossamer filament…yet they are nonetheless pulled or fixed in place, in fragile reciprocity with their surroundings. The webbing also implies at least some passage of time (or maybe I just read into everything with my Jungian imagination).
What do these images conjure for you?
