Joel Rea’s High-Velocity Paintings

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Australian artist Joel Rea creates cinematic paintings pulsing with the intensity of the wind and ocean waves. Rea captures the dynamic motion of natural elements, placing human protagonists into environments that make our species appear minuscule in comparison to the elemental forces. Rea’s dramatically-lit works transmits a sense of vertigo as one watches his characters (both human and canine) tumble and fall through the clouds or confront tumultuous waters. Take a look at some of Rea’s paintings below, images courtesy of the artist.
