Animals play a big part in fantasies and tales. Australian artist Joel Rea captures the sense of wonder animals provide in his latest surreal paintings. In his solo exhibition, Beasts of Arcadia, Rea creates a fascinating world with a series of paintings which combine nature, man, and the animal kingdom.
The beautiful paintings provide a unique sense of confrontation between the three. Powerful in its meaning, Beasts of Arcadia also provokes a variety of emotions in the viewer.
