Scott Marr Uses Natural Pigments to Create Bizarre Creatures

Scott Marr is an Australia-based artist whose work is composed of natural pigments extracted from flowers, berries and leaves. The process is fitting considering that Marr's artwork appears to be a mixture of natural and synthetic elements.

The illustrations often feature animals whose bodies are inter-spliced with an abundance of random objects. Some of the paintings look to be real time versions of the critters found in Dr. Seuss stories.

The juxtaposition between animal and manmade creates an interesting array of what could be extremely eccentric wall pieces. Any sense of the natural is completely lost, as the imposing elements detract from the animal's original form. Looking at Scott Marr's artwork one would be hard pressed to distinguish between the living and the on display.
