Illustration // Monday, 01 Sep 2014

Words from artist Samantha Mash: "While I primarily work within the digital realm of illustration, I am influenced heavily by Neoclassical painters, American gothic horror writing, and modern Japanese animation. I am interested in the place of iconography within paintings, as well as merging my childhood interests in anime with the more traditionally centered look of high art oil painting. I use my work to explore the thin boundary between what is eerie and what is considered beautiful; looking into the conventions of our cultural perception. Focusing my personal work around the themes of death, nature, levels of power, and seclusion. I am ever influenced by science and myth and want to continue to push these themes in my work."
