Escape Monday: The Art Of Jeremy Geddes

Gedde8I’m not artist and you could probably fill ten libraries with all the stuff I don’t know about art, but I know what I like and why I like it.

I stumbled on Jeremy Geddes when looking for some cool images to help you escape Monday and was instantly fascinated by his work. It would be awesome to see these paintings in real life, I don’t think these images do them any justice.

These oil paintings are part of a series called “Exhale” and feature people in suspended animation in urban scenes that are being destroyed. The overall effect is pretty powerful – some almost look like freeze frames of bomb blasts made all the more real by Geddes’ meticulous attention to detail.
