The Golem

This is a piece I did for the "Transmission: Experience" exhibition in Singapore:
It's kind of a new, rather abstract approach for me so I'm really curious what you guys think about it.
I felt the urge to break out of my daily routine, which is designing movie characters in full detail and life likeness.
I wanted to create some sort of stage with "props" and "actors" that relate to each other in an incomprehensible way, seeming to tell a story, but leaving the puzzle unfinished.
This one is digital, but I'm planning on a series of large oil painted canvases to explore and advance this direction.

About Me

My photo
Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist based in Los Angeles, California. He is a self taught artist who works both in traditional and digital media. His work is best described as an astoundingly lifelike depiction of parallel realities, populated by odd characters reminiscent of movies, comics but also Flemish Renaissance Painting. His unique approach of imaginative character creation has led him to become a character designer on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “John Carter of Mars”, directed by Andrew Stanton and "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. Parallel to his career in the film industry he still keeps track of his own projects, including paintings for future exhibitions, book projects etc.
