horsey web Montreals Cedric Taillon daydreams in oil and ink.

A solitary outline is filled in with paramour.  Pencil-leaden silhouttes gradually surround him, crowding a dingy bar as it is built.  Light fixtures descend from the ceiling to throw shadows of figures not yet substantiated, until the room is friendly and full.  The mood is tangible.  Exuberant.  Disturbing.  Organic, and spontaneously evolving.  Welcome to the world of Montreal’s Cedric Taillon.

ebonygown 400x400 HumAnatomy

At first glance, these pictures seem to be monstrous. I mean, really – who wants to see a woman modeling a beautiful ebony gown, and see muscle, tissue, and bones? However, the monstrosity is to the artistically untrained eye. [ Continue Reading ]
