Seeing Halloween is around the corner I thought to post something a little darker then my usual. These are photos made to look like paintings, revers of Nigel Cox who is a realist painter. Where Nigel is brilliant technically I struggle to find any depth in is artwork. Brooke in contrast has very rich subject matter and each photo is a story onto its own, however a touch of elusiveness keeps you guessing.
Entirely generated using 3D software Ray Casers work is haunting, surreal, disturbing, symbolic… He worked in the art and photography department of a children hospital. His job was to documented cases of abuse, reconstructive surgery and psychology. Dark as that may sound do interpreted his illustration and art outside of this fact – As with all art it can mean different things to different people.
As for me? Symbolic of Victorian era of sexual modernization, female empowerment / oppression, sexual deviance, or perhaps at a stretch symbolic of the caged, naive and affluent of this world. (Older post with more art work here)
Great new find for me. I love how she has pronounced her lines through a soft colour pallet. The core characters seem to float through and over the context of the artworks making them feel very much alive. All in all her illustrations feel uncluttered, interesting, alive and beautiful.
