These unusual Victorian-inspired surreal paintings which feature morphed part human, part animal subjects are the work of New York-based artist Colette Calascione.

Her work is an intriguing mashup of traditional portraiture and sexy pin-up women.

Her online gallery features a lot of female nudes who are also either morphed with or engaging with animals in a variety of bizarre settings.

Implications - As a way to escape a world of problems and stress, people are looking towards the bizarre and strange to bring their minds to another place. Movie and television producers will find that by creating another world completely separate from reality, viewers will tune in for quick breathers from their hectic lives.
