Hyper-Realistic Oil Paintings of Comics and Candy by Doug Bloodworth
Photorealist artist Doug Bloodworth has released another series of hyper-realistic oil paintings
Photorealist artist Doug Bloodworth has released another series of hyper-realistic oil paintings inspired by his fondest childhood memories and the scenarios in which comic books can often be found. Influenced by the lifelike sculptures of Duane Hanson, Bloodworth has taken this understanding of making something artificial seem completely real and combined it with homely American touchstones such as Keebler cookies, Cheetos, Tootsie Rolls and The Jetsons for a series of nostalgic compositions. According to Photorealism’s curator and president David Muller, the charm of Doug Bloodworth’s paintings is his ability to depict the “pop culture flotsam and jetsam of our lives.” For more information on Bloodworth’s direction, appeal and technique, head on over to Photorealism’s website for a complete overview of his latest works.
