Artist's Description

Fear and Despair is a series of works based on the basic human emotion of fear, while touching on depressive moods. It explores the concept that spirits live among us and that their presence can be felt in the physical world, often manifesting as deep and powerful emotions.

There are numerous references in the work, the grays, who appeared in the previous series A boy and his monster. Nosferatu’s version of Dracula. The Hatted Hunter, who appeared in the previous work The Relentless Pursuer. And finally Zombie who is a reoccurring character, best known for his appearances in the works Trinity of the Self and The Weight of a Heavy Burden.

Nosferatu is pretty much the beginning of horror in film, with his grisly face and awkward walk. I wanted to nod back to film industry and how it often influences the design and imagination of modern day society.
