Marc Felten’s Neon Dreamscapes

Fascinated by the violence inherent in the act of creation (in both the artistic and biological sense), Marc Felten creates acid-colored paintings with a visceral mixture of appeal and disgust. The human body is a staple in his subject matter, but Felten mangles it with paint splatters and subverts any semblance of realism, often skewing the figures to the right or the left so our perspective seems off. He entrenches his characters — which, faceless, often seem more like objects — in a neon dreamscape where allusions to mythology and contemporary kitsch coexist. Take a look at some of Felten's paintings after the jump.
