Surreal, dark and often macabre – the work of Joseba Eskubi has real power. In his own words he describes his paintings “I’m interested in organic forms in decomposition, soft and amorphous qualities that accentuate the tactile sense of vision. There is movement and tension, an internal force that pulls things toward the abyss. I usually work at several works at the same time, with the intention of expanding the possibilities of each theme. I try to make the final effect as something obsessive, repetitive, with a certain tone and atmosphere. The idea is that each image has a temperature, a character like a portrait of an unknown thing until you create it. Generally I don’t represent specific elements, trying to maintain a certain ambiguity that allows the suggestion and evocation.” Check out more of his work on Flickr.
