Digitally Assembled Paintings by Russ Mills

June 21, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Artist Russ Mills creates these astonishing images using a wide variety of traditional methods including painting and drawing with ink and pencil, but also utilizing scanned textures including splotches of paint (or “painting disasters” as he calls them) as well as photography. The resulting paintings are sparse in color but seem to contain explosive amounts of energy as displayed in the rough brushes of paint and the almost perfectly manic pencil strokes. Of his work Mills says:

My work dwells in a netherworld between urban fine art and contemporary graphics, a collision of real and digital media it is primarily illustration based with a firm foundation in drawing, I focus mainly on the human form particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature.

You can see many more paintings on Behance and limited edition prints are available in his shop.

Optical Illusion Skull Portraits by Tom French

April 16, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Painter Tom French just posted a number of new paintings in preparation for his upcoming exhibition titled Don’t Look Back at Zero Cool Gallery in London later this month. French’s acrylic works often depict couples in seemingly amorous relationships that create the optical illusion of a skull, pieces that walk the line between beautiful and unsettling. Just squint or take a few steps back from your monitor for maximum effect. You can see much more of his work on Flickr, and prints are available at Zero Cool.

A Finger-painted Mural Made with Charcoal Dust

March 22, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I first discovered the work of Judith Braun about a year ago and wrote a short piece about her beautifully symmetrical finger drawings that she refers to as “fingerings”. Braun’s work recently exploded in both scale and complexity, shifting from the abstract to the literal in this new mural entitled Diamond Dust. The piece was painted over several days in February in front of a live audience at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia using fingerprints created from the fine powder of ground charcoal. Diamond Dust is on display through June 1.
