The Art of Xiau-Fong Wee

Tempering the violence of modern weaponry with charminglyrendered creatures, artist Xiau-Fong Wee captures a dark humor in her quirkydrawings. While some of the weapons appear terrifyingly realistic, others suchas in the ray gun wielding bunny portrait, speaks more to the fantastical worlds ofscience fiction. The anthropomorphic dispositions of the spectacle-wearingcreatures also range in merry reverie to stern seriousness, adding to thedelightful nature of these well-executed portraits.
