These illustrations by Norwegian artist Katrin Berge combine soft images and features with absurd characters and situations, creating a set of deeply surreal images. The characters in these pictures are part recognizable and inviting and part alien and foreboding. The image of the animals depicted in a family portrait manner becomes particularly uncanny as your attention shifts from the fox and eagle to the obscure hooded individuals, and the elongated fingers that blur into the surrounding border.
Katrin Berge draws with such attention to detail that despite the outwardly connotations of these images, they appear to be biographical caricatures, reminiscent of 19th century illustrations. The black and white color scheme adds to both a vintage appeal as well as heightening the sense of a malevolent presence. Katrin Berge captures both the beauty behind the disturbed in this set of evocative images.
