Paco Pomet’s Surreal Paintings Take Vintage Photography
Spanish artist Paco Pomet uses oil on canvas to create wonderfully surreal scenes.
“His subverted landscapes and portraits often borrow from sepia-toned photographs that look like historical documents or vintage photos. There is a parallel to traditional Western Art, mixed with a monochrome effect that restates the documentary character of the original piece.”
Serpentine, Photography by Mark Laita
Mark Laita features up close shots of various snakes for his upcoming book called “Serpentine”. The photographs exhibit a series of snakes curling themselves in various shapes and designs while a solid black background amplifies the unique coloring and textures of the mysterious reptiles. This feature shows an interesting perspective to the frequently misunderstood footless creatures by focusing in on their seductive and even mesmerizing appearances leaving one to question why the torque their bodies in such positions that resemble shapes like a heart or a question mark.
