The state of the world has many of us contemplating the human experience and our connection to the Earth, and there's one artist in particular who's bringing that uncertainty to life — well, digitally at least.
Marcus Conge is a digital artist who's art is created in 3D and then rendered as images that help him (and others) fully explore and expand the boundaries of life, death and nature. As you can see in his work, Conge uses artificial subjects and manipulates them to morph with the natural world. The result? Digital images that reflect how he thinks about current topics — from science to technology to politics, the mans-versus-nature theme is everpresent and growing.
"It’s my nature to see, feel and taste every nuance of life in three whole dimensions. Rarely is anything flat or static. My art helps exorcise the real and imaginary demons I wrangle with, as gentler memories run loops around them and vie for my attention. It’s a daily struggle, to be sure," Conge writes in his artist statement. "What you, the viewer, take away from the images I’ve created and offer up for your consideration will be reflective of your struggle — of your worldview, of your experiences and of your narrative."
