Love these paintings by UK-based artist James Mortimer. While not setting out to create a world entirely distinct from our own, Mortimer offers his own unique amendments, manifesting strange-yet-familiar versions of everyday lives. As he states:
“So it’s my own skewed version of things that I put in the pictures, of how I would fancy the world to be. Obviously the creative process is usually a touch more subconsciously driven than this, but I think that making images along these lines results in art which is at least passionate and wholly individual, and at most which serve as metaphors for the human condition, such as it is.”
