Cover design for US Christmas's "Run Thick in the Night" album
Jeremy Hush is an American artist based in Philadelphia, PA. His imagery focuses on the link between humanity and nature with a particular attention to the psychological aspects of this interaction. He has been creating illustrations for the punk and heavy metal music scenes for many years. With his love for animals and attraction to storytelling, Hush’s work evinces a wonderful balance of masculine and feminine, his dark aesthetics setting off gentle linework and shading. His works are heavy with symbolism, but the meanings behind his symbols are personal. Hush’s most well-known cover to date is for metal band US Christmas’s Run Thick in the Night album, which is bringing him lots of new international attention. Hush is heavily influenced by Arthur Rackham and other 19th century illustrations. The mysteries of nature and his fondness for animals also have a considerable amount of influence over the subjects of his art. His spidery drawings are dark and mysterious, but, like Rackham’s drawings, evoke the fear, love and awe one might have for nature and her power. One never knows what she’ll pull on you next, yet she is beautiful and sublime. Visit his Blog and his Site for more of his works. Sources of the above text Here ans Here
Αλλά πάντα από την αποστα- σιοποιημένη ματιά της τέχνης
Εργα τέχνης που απεικονίζουν σκοτεινές πλευρές της ιστορίας και του ανθρώπινου ψυχισμού, όπως ωμή βία, ρατσισμό, κακοποίηση και σφαγές άλλων -ΔΕΝ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΛΟΓΟΚΡΙΝΟΝΤΑΙ!! Πρέπει να αντιμετωπίζουμε πρόσωπο με πρόσωπο την ωμότητα και να πασχίζουμε να την κατανοήσουμε με κριτικό και αποστασιοποιημένο τρόπο, αν θέλουμε να φτιάξουμε έναν καλύτερο κόσμο.
Graphics that depict dark aspects of history—such as violence, intolerance, racism, aggressive nationalism, war and atrocity, abuse of others and of the environment in general—have not been censored. We must confront such harsh images directly—and struggle to critically understand them—if we hope to ever make a better world. ocw.mit.edu
