Jeremy Geddes

Some paintings by Jeremy Geddes.  I am completely amazed by this man's work, all of these are paintings (yes, paintings!) NOT photographs.  You need to click on them to get the whole effect, otherwise you won't be able to appreciate the detail and time that must have went into these pieces.

Most (if not all) of his work has a downright creepy vibe to them, which I love.  I can't stop scrolling through his site.  I love the color palette he has chosen, there is a definite starkness to the blacks and greys, but a sort of brightness too.  It's rather jarring, which is probably the effect he is going for.  I like how the compositions aren't too complicated, so you get the entire effect of the figures.  It's very solitary and kinda scary. 

For some reason I can't stop thinking about the Janitor from Scrubs when I see this.  It's just as disturbing a piece as the other ones but I almost find something comical about it.  Then again, I don't know how many people have told me what a sick sense of humor I have =/

I love the sinister overtone of this one- the grinning man in the back, how you can only make out his face in the shadows.  Such a simple composition, yet effective.

I wanted to post some of his other work, but they are really wide and I'd rather not distort or crop the image.  So I would just check out his website and scroll through the amazingness!

P.S. You may also want to check out his blog:
