Edgar Leissing’s Paintings of Metamorphosis

Austrian painter Edgar Leissing creates dramatic representations of strange hybrids, dramatically merging the human body with flora and fauna in color-saturated compositions. Painting in a flat style that unabashedly leaves impressionistic brushstrokes and illustrative line-work exposed, Leissing captures a sense of dynamism and movement in these works. Muscular body parts appear to contort and writhe as they involuntarily merge with other limbs, flowers or animal heads. Take a look at some of the paintings after the jump, images courtesy of Edgar Leissing.
