Zombies in the landscape

George Pfau sends us his new Zombiescapes site, "These impressionist/pointillist oil paintings portray figures on the verge of recognition. Each painting is based on a scene in a zombie film in which figures are small and out of focus."

The oil paint allows each figure to bleed into and intertwine with its surroundings. Each painting is accompanied by a high-resolution photograph in which these figures are magnified, emphasizing the blurry boundary that encircles each body. For me, the grotesque, oozing, blending qualities of oil paint are an apt medium for zombies and human bodies that are in-between, or out of control. The zombie film depicted is indicated in the title of each piece.


(Thanks, George!)
