Richard Kirk’s Surreal Ink Drawings

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Inspired by 19th and 20th-century illustration, Canadian artist Richard A. Kirk delicately renders his own version of nature in his ink works on paper. Human and animal anatomies unravel and rebuild among the flora and fauna, giving light to new creatures that symbolize the human impulse to go beyond the limits of our bodies and evolve using technology. Characters reminiscent of automata and cyborgs — which frequently made appearances in early science fiction novels — populate Kirk’s surreal forests. Take a look at some of Kirk’s work below.
