He has a real command of human anatomy which he then likes to distorts. Chris Scarborough likes to add a lot of detail to hands and feet which draws your attention to them – I wonder if it has some meaning or just for effect. Either way I like the extra detail. He also gives his characters these big eyes (Seems to be quite the popular effect to give more emotion to characters). His characters generally have quite a macabre feeling. Ohh and then the spaceship is great I want one just like that!
These paintings (Oil on Linen) of monkeys became quite a hit in London. Monkeys generaly imply some sort of social satire and I belive thats why people took to these. I certainly don’t think the work would have been coined as contemporary art if the artiest decided to draw a bunch of elephants in the same way. Personally, I think monkeys are a reflection for humans animalism. A reminder of our own once primordial ancestors which in turn makes our treasured superior animal condition (human) fallible.
