Cubby Hell

By Twistie

It’s fascinating what can be done with photography.

The contemporary art online magazine, Hi*Fructose has a gallery up of Russian born artist Oleg Dau’s work in the medium. This body of work, entitled ‘Cubs,’ starts with photographs of children gazing full on at the camera. Then the bodies and skins are digitally manipulated to get the effect the artist wants, which is heavily influenced by Victorian post-mortem photography. Warning: the last link includes images that some viewers may find extremely disturbing.

Having always had a certain fondness for the surreal and slightly macabre, I have to say I want one of these portraits. I want to know more about how the artist got the effects, and what inspired him. I want to put one of these on a wall and ponder it at odd times and in different moods.

And I do want to see how people react when they see it!
