Artist Tim Ripley’s Surreal Soft Cell Forms

Artist Tim Ripley creates surreal oil paintings that begin with sculptural polymer clay forms converted to photographs and finally paintings. After digitally altering each photograph he creates a high quality print of the digital file and then translates the image with paint. The results are smooth, often gravity defying forms, that resemble biological masses and bridge the worlds of science and design. Ripley is an instructor at Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois and has an upcoming exhibition entitled Soft Cell that opens April 4th at Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York. See more after the jump!
