This disquieting Bride in a pressure-cooker bonnet is the work of Ray Caesar, a leading light of the Pop Surrealist movement.
Using sophisticated modeling and texture-mapping software, the artist poses and positions his characters and props in a 3D environment, creating weirdly appealing images of mutated, porcelain–skin figures in Regency-era gowns inhabiting an opulent, waking dreamworld. Think Alice in Wonderland on drugs.
