Kevin Francis Gray is an Irish sculptor that creates neoclassical inspired pieces that transcend all conventionalisms.
His technique shows a complete dedication to realism in search for a physical perfection that few have achieved. The meticulously crafted figures lay at the cross roads of real and unreal and open a debate about the current definitions of tradition and innovation. Although his choice of materials, the extreme detail and visual references he incorporates in every piece may come across a conventional, this is exactly where the innovative essence lies.
this is so beautiful
Remy Nurse, a superbly talented illustrator based in Falmouth, UK disembodies and twists anatomical elements to create surreal scenes influenced by everything from fake cookbooks to rare human syndromes. One of her series, titled Hypocondriacs Handbook “visually interprets a series of obscure and rare syndromes, diseases and ailments that can affect the complex structure of the human body and mind.” For instance, Alien Hand Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that causes hand movement without the person being aware of what is happening or having control over the action. I don’t think I have to explain Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome…
This is an artists who is truly inspired by human anatomy and the strange diseases and ailments that can manifest in the human body. Looking forward to seeing more of Remy’s work!
Travis Bedel aka bedelgeuse is a mixed media artist that creates anatomical collages from cutouts of vintage etchings and illustrations, combining them into anatomical, botanical, and other biological parts.
Paul Louise-Julie – Dreamy Sculptural Paintings
Paul Louise-Julie is a French-American painter and sculptor working exclusively in paper, cardboard and acrylic. Using both traditional and modern techniques, he gives his pieces a gestural and naturalistic effect. Paul places pieces of cardboard and paper in the same geometric harmony characteristic of West African sculpture as well as its hieratic scale. Also, he is strongly influences by European masters such as Klimt, Monet, Rodin, and Eric Joisel. The artist is best known for his 3D paintings. He produces these by placing pieces of paper sculpture onto a canvas, and then adds color and lighting with acrylic paint, thus creating a sense of depth that seamlessly bridges painted illusion with dimensional reality. There is always an interesting story behind Paul’s pieces. In the first picture, the core concept was to explore the illusion of depth while convincing the eye that it is looking at the surface of the water from the bottom. Using many of the techniques developed from “Midsummer”, this piece also employs origami fish as well as paper sculpture. Combined with Trompe l’oeuil methods in vibrant acrylic paint, the end result is revolutionary exploration of depth in the genre of painting. Another work is called “Contemplation” – like the name suggests, this piece explores the relationship between deep thought and personal identity. The tranquility that comes from retreating to the solitary waterfalls of inner contemplation. Smooth, polished surface of the waterfalls also show the parallel facades of the subconscious.
Korean artist whose main inspiration is nature. His elegant sculptures, installations and photographs show us the powerlessness of humain being in front of the forces of nature.
