alchan-Looking Outwards 9

(Jakub Javora, Dark Forest, 2016)

I came across Jackie’s post on Jakub Javora’s work and was really drawn in by the style and slight animation. Though I’ve grown to be less impressed by how “realistic” something is rendered and more interested with different methods of stylization, I think that the level of realism works well in this piece. Like Jackie, also I really appreciate the narrative level the artist brought into the work. The glowing rectangle (doorway? light?) adds an element of mystery to the piece, which combined with the lighting and the movement of the deer work to create an overall atmosphere of mystery.
