This digitally produced work, that has been brought into the analog world as a print to canvas, speaks to reoccurring themes in this artist’s work.
What lays beneath the surface of a beautiful or an attractive exterior? Strength? Power? Or something altogether more sinister? And do we care when the surface is so alluring?. Danger is as intoxicating as lust and passion.
The work was created by using reference photographs and sketching directly into Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. Further freehand digital painting techniques were employed to create the final image.
