Dave Kendall is a contemporary artist. Let him speak about him in his SITE:
I am an illustrator specialising in Fantasy, Horror and Sci-Fi art.
I have worked for a large number of companies and their number continues to grow. My first professional work was Psycho Killer for TOXIC! Written by Pat Mills. From there Necroscope for Brian Lumley beckoned and a comic for the rock band Metallica. The Metallica and Necroscope work featured in 'Sound & Fury' an exhibition of Heavy Metal Imagery in Bradford Museum and around the country. An illustration from the Necroscope comics has also appeared in the Brian Lumley Companion, from Tor books. I have illustrated Prospect Place, an unpublished as yet, modern day horror story, written by Poppy Palin.
Currently working in the areas of comics and role playing games. Have recently completed work for 2000ad, and contribute work to the anthology Event Horizon from Mam Tor. I work for a number of publishers producing book covers and illustrations.
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
