Featured Artist / Exhibition News
Eclectix has been big fans of the artist duo Ransom & Mitchell, since way back in the day when they were known simply as “Purebred“. They have been up to no good as usual – creating outrageous elaborate tableaux and incredible artist portraitures.
Mixing it up with vintage and digital effects in their surreal visionary way. Creating fantastically detailed and strange sets apropos for each subject or theme; designing and fashioning the costumes and makeup; building complicated fantasy backdrops and capturing the final photographic masterpiece. all this with the help of their talented staff and models, of course…
We thought it was time to take a look at some newer works of theirs and pass on the news of a number of upcoming exhibitions.
The piece (above), “It Will Be Ours” (bigger version here), was inspired by what Scientist Jonas Salk once said:
If all the insects on the planet disappeared, life on earth would end. If all the humans on the planet disappeared, life on earth would flourish.

SaveNature.Org was asked to bring the same insects used in the shoot, as well. Amazing creatures! A portion of the proceeds of sales of the print “It Will Be Ours” will be donated to SaveNature.Org.
