Over the years we have followed Nathan Spoor’s fantastic work with relish. We had to revisit and share some highlights from his personal series of ongoing works entitled ‘The Intimate Parade’, an open ended series begun in 2002. These are beautifully dreamy, and symbolic works – enveloping the classic surrealist style within a modern intimate context.
Featured Artist: David Seidman
We don’t feature a lot of digital art here at Eclectix, but when we do it’s full of original creativity and imagination that cannot be denied. David Seidman’s art is all that and more – a feast of dark and pop surrealism which inspire beautiful meanderings of the eye. His marriage of all the techniques modern-day technology and old school classicism has to offer, result in phantasmagorias worthy of swoons.
Painter CT Nelson creates fantastic surreal worlds, partly abstracted and partly illustrative – with his more recent works leaning towards less definitive imagery. Channeling visions of science fiction, historical events, trippy hallucinations and vortex swirling motions of weather patterns – his paintings mesmerize and pull you in.
Featured Artist: Alejandro García Restrepo
Colombian artist Alejandro García Restrepo creates beautifully surreal and mystical imagery, in graphite on paper and other mixed medias. With a photorealistic bent, he captures darkly spiritual and sometimes randomly strange dream-like visions.
Ray Caesar, An Eclectix Artist Interview
Ray Caesar creates gorgeously haunting combinations of the rococo, the romantic and contemporary surreal imagery, with bits of more modern fashions and sexual fetish. His artistic influences reference the French rococo, variations on the theme of the fête champêtre (which featured figures in ball dress or masquerade costumes disporting themselves amorously in parkland settings), Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, Dali and the Dutch painters.
