Joel Rea – Dropping May 5, 2022
Joel Rea is an acclaimed, award-winning artist known for his surreal, allegorical paintings. Rea’s oil on canvas works straddle hyperrealism, photorealism, and virtuosic Renaissance realism. Rea has created a unique, socially aware, and introspective style through impeccable brushwork.
Inspired by the mysteries of the animal kingdom and the Universe, Rea’s narratives embrace the ageless turmoil of human consciousness and the unwavering survival instinct. Rea combines contemporary visuals with the sublime to provoke emotional responses through masterful aesthetics.
This series of surreal, ocean-based artworks were created through the combination of Joel Rea’s immense reference from collecting, global photoshoots and thousands of hours of oil painting.
Intrigued with notions of the oceans’ duality, traversing adulthood and how dark events changed the artist’s perspective of the sea, Rea attempts to present an original depiction of the scale of time through the juxtaposition of immensely diverse natural elements.
Rea’s narratives celebrate Earth as a life-generating system harnessing mysterious forces, whilst also questioning what drives the complex layers of existence within our ancient planet.
