…Jason Freeny’s work is amazing?

Jason Freeny

Remember Jason Freeny’s “Pneumatic Anatomica”?

Well he’s back, and this time, his art dives into the insides of a gummy bear and a Dunny, in pieces he calls “Immaculate Confection” and “Visible Vinyl”.

I emailed Jason to find out a little bit more about his work, and asked him, “What inspires you to create these amazing pieces of art?”

He replied:

    You pose a question I have been asked before and one that is not easily answered. I could give you a long dribbling artist statement on all the symbolism and meaning I am trying to portray to make the world a better place but the simple fact is, these pieces are mostly a combination of my interests, 3D modeling, pop culture, illustration, surrealism, cartoons and a taste for the off center. Ultimately I create these images for me to enjoy as well as my 5 year old son. I also enjoy releasing them into the wild (internet) and see the reactions people have to them. I am thrilled that people enjoy them and that keeps me making more. I actually get a bit down when they don’t go over well, but that makes me try harder the next time. Its become a challenge for me create work that tickles the small piece of the brain that enjoys these twisted guilty pleasures.

Sounds like one down to earth dude!

Who knew the inanimate could be so interesting?

…Disney’s advertising is magical?

Disney hired Annie Leibovitz for their Year of a Million Dreams campaign, and the results are simply stunning. Rather than relying on the usual cartoon character theme that Disney is famous for, Leibovitz opted for a little more upscale approach. The ads, to be shown in mags such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ and The New Yorker, feature celebrities dressed up as classic Disney characters, with a definite eye towards the magical. Current images include Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland, and David Beckham as Sleeping Beauty’s Prince, with 10 to 12 more waiting to be shot. It’s an interesting approach for Disney, but one that will probably work well for convincing parents that it’s again time to visit the happiest place on Earth.
