Alicia Martin's evolution artwork has that amazingly eerie feel to it that so often is associated with surreal art. The difference between traditional surreal art and Martin's is that her work has an evolutionary theme that depicts grotesque creatures that look to be formed out of bacteria cultures -- these aren't your average probiotics though.

The ability to take the viewer to an entirely different world is one of those rare talents that not many artists have. Martin's ability to turn the fictitious into hyperrealistic forms is what provides the most disturbing aspect of her evolution artwork. The mood of the digital paintings is expertly guided by the excellent color work that Martin did on all of her images. Blending the backgrounds with grungy colors to make the focal point be the creatures.
