Russel Cameron’s Grotesque And Disturbing Sculptures Of Amputated Human Limbs

23244977705_efa4617448_b22617867203_667f6dbf5e_b 22949137070_7177fd6813_b 23218830706_a5b3464c28_b

Brooklyn based artist Russel Cameron creates lifelike sculptures of amputated human body parts. Displayed almost like trophies, Cameron’s on gong series, Flesh and Bone, acts like a collection of the living bizarre. Using classic materials such as clay, paint, wood, and metal, Cameron, a self taught artist, is able to perfectly achieve the goal of many artists: he attains the ability to accurately mimic human flesh. This handiwork allows his work to truly provoke, probe and disturb; each piece acts as a slight ode to the abnormal, forcing the viewer to imagine the the entire creature attached to the individualized parts. The details are what allow the work to feel so real — his minor hints of flesh tonality and careful placement of wrinkles and creases give enough information to perhaps create a full narrative for every piece. His work is influenced by artists specializing in dark and fantastical subject matter such as Zdzislaw Beksinski, the Polish dystopian surrealist painter, Hieronymus Bosch, the Dutch painter known for his detailed absurd landscapes, and H.R. Giger, the Swiss “biomechanical” surrealist painter and special effects artist known for Alien. He also takes inspiration from classicists such as the infamous Spanish romanic painter Francisco Goya. Through his work, Russel Cameron aims to glorify the beauty in what can be often found as grotesque.

LA TEX CITY


Eastside Angelinos are probably familiar with the dead-end leading to an overpass in Chinatown on Yale Street (I know I’ve made the repeated mistake? miraculous discovery? of turning onto Yale and thinking it was a through street many a times)- but less have probably seen it used for anything not related to shady drug deals (can anyone confirm this assumption?).

 

Get Rid of White Walls Collective is focused on bringing fine art out of galleries and into non-traditional spaces: public, domestic, industrial, nautical, etc. These events are meant to reveal the unique identity of these sites to the surrounding public, offering a place of public interaction via the provocation of the urban landscape.

Everton Wright’s Huge Drawings Created By Groups Of People Walking In Formation

Everton Wright (aka Evewright) has been designing and orchestrating these “Walking Drawings”, a series of huge-scale “drawings” carried out by people (and sometimes horses) who interact with the natural landscape in a way that is regimented. The end results are striking designs that snake across the earth. Wright films the creation of each piece, and the documentation becomes a part of the artwork. (via)

Alex Wein’s Smoke-Filled Photography Series

 

Alex Wein is a recent graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art. The photography work on his site is really diverse, but I’m particularly into these smoke-swathed figures in black and white. (via)

István Szugyiczky

Istvan Szugyiczky bd

István Szugyiczky is a digital artist currently living in Budapest.  His recently updated portfolio employs a simplified palette and strong, almost structural forms. The lines and forms are elusive and seductive mixed against the grainy glow offered in many of his illustrations. Take a moment to enjoy the dark world his pieces have to offer.

We recently featured his work in The Underdogs, which is Book 3 of Beautiful/Decay. The luscious issue features many incredible artists, like the good sir featured here, that makes for a great read. Support artists István by subscribing to Beautiful/Decay!
