Octopus Vanités

Human beings are moved by paradoxal feelings. Facing death, they just hesitate between the fear and the fascination. Death is for that reason a human’s passion and a recurrent theme in the history of Art. That is especially the case of what we call “vanités”. Skulls, masks, in paintings and sculptures, are the mirrors of the existential and eternal thoughts of the man.

Today, I want to introduce the work of Jim Skull, as an actual contribution to this “vanités”‘s tradition.

His creations, modern, raw and light, seem to float in the air and swimming like an octopus, a jellyfish…

A very fine and elegant work !
