Skull Flowers is a series of moving and still images. The subject matter features two snakes wrapped around a skull, referencing outsider art and classic Americana—from tattoo culture to vintage floral motifs.  The slick CG surface of the serpents and skull is subverted by the familiar floral patterns of our grandma’s bed sheets, which roll across the 3d models surface generating an uncanny yet hypnotic effect. This body of work was created using 3d software and advanced rendering techniques.

Trudy Elmore

Obsessed with mythology and technology, Trudy Elmore is best known for translating the dramatic narrative and theatrical posturing of classical painting into the digital realm. Based in animation, installation and print, her practice explores issues of impermanence and technological evolution. Elmore says, “with the emergence of archetypal figures like the Cyborg and A.I, we are again being asked to question the age-old ontological gap between nature and technology,” and she finds this intersection most fascinating. Her work characteristically involves 3D forms and advanced CG rendering techniques.
