Fine Art Friday: THOMAS DEVAUX

One common theme in most of the work I post here for Fine Art Friday is darker subject matter. I al always drawn to the rich blacks and confrontational style of many artists who choose to explore what I consider more "human" qualities of mortality. On that note, I recently discovered the work of photographer Thomas Devaux and was blown away by the imagery he creates. Mostly because it is photographs and not an oil painting of charcoal drawing, he uses the endless capabilities of digital manipulation, Devaux's series entitled "Attrition" is a reinterpretation of art history and a slight nod to its destruction and trying to get past the fact that it is used to compare everything after.
