Eddy Stevens’s Paintings Hint at Supernatural Occurrences

Belgian-born, French-based artist Eddy Stevens's rich paintings convey the presence of otherworldly forces. In one piece, small rocks float inside a room as if magnetized, ready to launch an attack at a vulnerable, nude character cowering in the corner. In other pieces, human bodies improbably float, hovering in cannonball positions that seem too static to abide by the normal laws of gravity. There appears to be an energetic forcefield in this strange world set in the wooded European countryside. His disrobed characters (which Stevens models after his wife) suggest a return to a more primal way of being, which Stevens depicts with technical mastery. Take a look at some of his recent work after the jump.
