There is a distinct aura of creepiness to be found in Los Angeles-based artist Alex K. Gardner’s work. Whether through colorful or black-and-white scenes, the moodiness is conveyed through their respective coloring, as well as imagery of faceless characters, amputated body parts, and oddly-shaped animals. Water and aquatic life seem to feature in many pieces, bringing to mind surrealist themes like dreams, the subconscious, and symbolism. Even pieces denoting a softer color palette still diffuse eerie attributes through depictions of strange, unusual worlds. Undoubtedly, it’s art that’s as intriguing as it is peculiar.
