London-based artist Grgoire A. Meyer creates flawless digital illustrations that evoke emotionally thoughtful reactions. He captures the essence of fleeting moments, like a splash of water or a disintegrating face, and freezes them in time in ephemeral objects that appear almost tangible.
The works are distortions of the human form and create a complex relationship between fact and fiction. Through expert digital techniques, Meyer constructs fragmented bodies and faces made out of shiny, reflective metallic. He uses extremely dramatic lights and shadows to create the illusion of a realistic object that only exists within the digital platform.
With titles like Emergence, Surface, and Shattered, Meyer hints at feelings of solitude and loneliness. Viewers are invited to inspect the surface, to look through the hollow forms, and to investigate the reflections bouncing off of the glossy metal in a discovery of the many layers within each composition, both on and below the surface.
