H.R. Giger’s artwork for Aliens was the theme for WC117, so after spending several hours viewing his paintings leading up to and following the first Aliens movie, I tried to come up with something original that was “inspired by” Giger.
“Haunted” or “infected” is maybe more like it His “biomechanical” portraits and landscapes are extremely dark and brutal in subject matter and tone, so I attempted to represent some of that here in a decidedly severe piece called “Ventricular”:
Not something I’d typically set out to do were it not for the WC theme, but it was an interesting exercise and a challenge. Hopefully it’s not too dark for all the non-gamma-corrected monitors out there.
