(Max Hernst)

Hernst's work is dark, sometimes disturbing and confusing but none the less intriguing. I'm a fan of victoriana and anthropomorphism so needless to say these images appeal to me and influence my own work. looking at some of the images reminds me of a lot of Gustav Dore's work, it seems similar in style and content, I love all the hidden pieces within these works, there are often dead 'things' sometimes animal , sometimes there are human legs poking out from beneath random places, i like the fact you don't really know why these legs and animals are there, which to me further intrigues me .
