There is something to be said for the art of good abstraction. After all, who didn’t feel a good twinge of intrigue when they saw their first Dali back in seventh grade art class, right? And there’s a similar something to be said about the abstract illustrations of Dhear One.At best, whimsical and other-worldly, at worst, drab and uninteresting, Dhear One’s illustrations are unique. They are reminiscent of worlds described in literature by Madeline L’Engle and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, worlds that are similar to ours, but different in many ways. Perhaps they would be well-suited to illustrate French children’s fantasy books. Personally, though, they don’t do a lot on their own.
