Art inspiration: Gavin Tremlett

This is the work of Gavin Tremlett. I am particularly intrigued by his portraits, where faces, often submerged in paint, morph and melt, creating a somewhat disturbing image. Although the faces appear soft and malleable, their direct look, and often off kilter features unsettle the viewer, and the play of ideas revealed and secreted behind the paint is reminiscent of masks. I love his use of colour, but ultimately I find the staring eyes and blurred skin quite horrifying. Born in the Uk, but now working in Germany, Tremlett is represented by various galleries. What do you think of his work?
