In a departure from my usual subject matter, I have instead decided to explore the realm of surrealism with this concept piece. I have long been fascinated with the suspension of disbelief, where something is out place within the seemingly normal world. It is inherently unsettling when you realize that all is not as it seems, or that something is defying natural physical laws.
This picture has been directly influenced by imagery from the video clip “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails as well elements from the “American Horror Story” television show. Other inspirations have come from David Lynch, the artwork of M.C. Escher and, more recently, the hyper-realist art of Jeremy Geddes.
This scene shows a man levitating above the floor in an empty room. He appears to be in a trance-like state although it is not known if this is a deliberate act or against his will. It is also not known where he is or how he came to be there. In many ways it is like a dream; you can interpret it any way you want.
