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)
A few words from the illustrator: “I dream of digital ink and antique paper. Layering texture upon texture and telling a story.”
And herewith are the stunning results of Andrews dreams:
I posted Brian Viveros work some timeback and have just learnt that he is doing a solo exibition at Last Rites Gallery NY starting 3rd of September.
Known for his strong and sensuous depictions of women, Brian M.Viveros is a master of contemporary iconography paying homage to the femme fatale… You can find the full press release 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.
She has a more organic feel to James Jean probably due to her mediums which are water colour and ink. There is an uncanny similarity between Kyung – Adventure and James Jean – Haze, dont you think? I would also say her subject matter is similar to both James Jean and Yuko Shimizu but a more subtle version of Yuko Shimizu.
Quote from the illustrator: “I try to set the tone of the story being told. Everybody comes with their own unique set of preconceptions that can alter challenge, or reinforce.” Enjoy!
