Catherine Nelson’s Otherworldly Digital Paintings

Digital artist Catherine Nelson began her career in the visual arts working on special effects for feature films like Harry Potter and Moulin Rouge, but in recent years Nelson has applied her knack for creating illusions to her personal art practice. For her "Other Worlds" series (which will be featured in a solo show of the same title at Julie Saul Project Gallery in NYC this September), Nelson culls elements of hundreds of photographs to form digital paintings of planets. These Earth-like orbs float placidly in space — a vision of pristine eco-systems untouched by human activity. Take a look at some of Nelson's work below, images via Slate.
