The Art of Eric Bailey

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Artist Eric Bailey pairs glamorous, sexually aware women with displaced woodland creatures in his realistic, classically influenced portraits. Sugar, represented by bulbous cotton candy, frosted cupcakes and a gumball machine, adds a third element to the work, suggesting innocence and pleasure in relation to the luxurious settings and ideal bodies of the female figures. While the animals appear in harmony within their extravagant settings, the true capacity of their feral natures fills the work with a subtle anxiety.
