This modern Bride is alive, but she’s obsessed about her health. Artist MichaelO (Michael Oswald) calls this piece Hypochondria.
The patchwork girl is a digital creation, based on a photograph, built up and painted on a computer, mostly with Photoshop. The artist describes his work as “photo-manipulation on steroids”, but don’t let the digital wizardry fool you. PCs and Photoshop are tools, like brushes and oil paints, and MichaelO’s superlative art is the work of a top-notch draughtsman and an accomplished artist.
