The work of Marie Rosen, an artist born and based in Brussels, Belgium, is undeniably surreal. The images, which will drudge up memories of 'The Shining' for those who watched the Stanley Kubrick-produced and -directed film, are steeped in a sinister serenity. As though Marie Rosen wanted to depict a series of passive aggressive nightmares, viewers are sure to walk away a chill running down their spins and the hair on the back of their necks raised.

Interestingly, Marie Rosen is not afraid to use vibrant colors in her paintings. Yet somehow this detail doesn't take away from the creepy vibe of each scene. They simply add a retro perspective in the form of geometrically patterned wallpaper and tiles.
