A Siberian cold front sweeping across Europe has caused freezing temperatures and snow in the most unusual of places. Such is the case with Athens, where the ancient Acropolis was coated in a powdery dusting of snow. The sub-zero temperatures across Greece threw the country into a bit of a panic, with flights canceled and schools closing.
We discovered UK-based artist Philip McKay’s work on our very own website when he submitted some of his stunning work to our Photos section. [Editor’s note: This is referring to our old website.] His digital artwork leaves a feeling of solitude and confinement. In many of the manipulated stills, the subject is at a distance in an empty land. Even when there is some companionship, there’s a sense of loneliness and tension. The occasional faint tints of color and hints of surrealism that McKay incorporates into his work are subtle yet effective. I could get lost in these vast worlds along with these intriguing characters.
