FLOTSAM JETSAM AND THEN SOME

FLOTSAM JETSAM AND THEN SOME

 

‘The impact of mass consumerism on the environment is the theme for Flor Baradi’s series of artworks entitled ‘Flotsam, jetsam and then some’.

Baradi’s large-scale illustrations of mutated animals of vaguely Lovecraftian origin: 
a bottle-winged crocodile, a chair-finned Leviathan and a cookware-tailed peacock are several examples of the creatures from her fantasy-fueled imagination.

Done in canvas using indian ink and a very fine brush, 
Baradi’s training as a jewelry designer proved useful in rendering the minute details of each of the imaginary being’s feather and scale.

Along the constant flooding, comes the ebb and flow of human and industrial refuse; Baradi believes that we are setting ourselves up to someday find, awash on our shore, monstrous beasts( calamities) which we ourselves created but can no longer control.’

“Some were figures of well-known myth-gorgons, chimaeras, Cyclops and all their shuddersome congeners. Others were drawn from darker and more furtively whispered cycles of subterranean legend…” 
H.P. Lovecraft
