"Forest Satanicat" by Cory Benhatzel
Available HERE
Here’s my contribution to Modern Eden’s @moderneden “Home” show; entitled “From Within Us” (on right) as seen on display now in the gallery in San Francisco.  The imagery on my piece is very personal to me; barn owls depicting aspects of life/death/birth, amongst human skulls and bones.  One side has a juvenile barn owl, another a baby, and the front is the adult (parents). In this world, animals such as these magical owls have outlasted “The Uprights” (humans) who have destroyed each other with their savage wars and the creatures are left to a peaceful existence.

It was a fun challenge painting these wrap-around scenes on a three dimensional object; it was my first time doing so besides a nesting doll set several years ago.  I hope to do more three dimensional objects in the future, and hopefully take it even further to making my creatures three dimensional…..
