There was something unique about the line, using a digital pen & tablet, a framework is digitally drawn in exquisite detail and then meticulously coloured, to create the finished artwork. The subjects, are human bodies with animal heads as in totemic, power animal hybrid affirmations. Metamorphica points to a world gone mad, and in very much need of rethinking its cultural archetypes. With theatrical cone light as background, the subjects are even more enhanced, they appear either as heroic or decadent, as a criticism to the establishment or poised to save humanity.
“These animal headed hybrids and dead beat fashionistas mix humans with paganistic totemism and skeletal decadence, resulting in a highly stylised ultra modern icon.” Paul Kinsley Squire
The completed pieces are each available as acrylic (perspex) and aluminium mounted prints, or archival Giclée prints which can be traditionally framed. At the moment, you can find the prints at our online store.
Besides the strong Metamorphica series, Paul Kingsley Squire creates paintings, drawings and other digital art, building a diverse portfolio including ethereal abstract landscapes, anthropomorphic animals, and figures inspired by metamorphosis and transformation .
