These Lori Earley illustrations are absolutely hypnotic. It’s nearly impossible for viewers to look away once they’ve made eye contact with the beautifully rendered irises of these porcelain skin women. But once viewers get past their initial wonderment of staring at the doe-eyed beauty of these females, they’ll soon discover the alien-like ligaments of Earley’s subjects. When was the last time you saw a person whose neck is as long as his or her head?
Lori Earley’s stylistic choice of elongating the limbs of her subjects invokes an ethereal feeling within viewers because of the surreal nature of her images. On occasion, she’ll also depict women in macabre or fantastical scenarios, taking viewers on a visual and mental journey that confronts them with strangeness with which they are not usually acclimated.
