There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble in the trees
The current series, There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble in the trees is an exploration of the iconography of evil in the suburban cultural realm. With the intention to create a ‘suburban aesthetic’ this work draws together elements of traditional landscape, fantasy poster art and the dark imagery of heavy metal culture. The images depict the elements of suburban cultural iconography that have become cliché and brings them into an almost uncomfortable realm of high art. The portrait like skulls and creatures that emerge from the landscape itself, echo the haunts of gothic landscape and seduce the audience into a dark and uneasy yet beautifully inviting space.
