    I LOVE the 1st & 2nd one especially. All of them are great. The realty of the eyes reminds me of Ron English’s style, in a way but very different too. Love it Ruben; keep it up.

  • the fifth cought my eye,
    I like these Marble-structured bodies and the reference to sculpture comes out here fantasticaly.
    It’s an interesting mix of painting, sculpturing and photography in my eyes, combining realism and thought on the matter without getting too complex.
    This might have not been the artists original intent, but I read the images that way.

    And come to think of it, the characters are pretty Anime-style considering their proportions.
    I’m not sure if I’m too fond of that, considering the way Anime has been rendered as some Pop-Design-Culture thing the past 10 years in western nations, but that’s mainly my problem with the general use of the medium and doesn’t have anything to do with the actual artworks displayed here.

    Anyways, good job Mr. Ireland!

  • the first one stole my heart. amazing work. just beautiful!

  • Fresh!

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
