Having explored clay sculpting and drawing at the same time, as a painter Jarold focuses more on recreating forms and how their surfaces react to light and shadow.
“My main inspirations come from skulls and bones,” he says. “I love the silhouettes and lines they create. To me they’re nature’s best sculptures: they are not only aesthetic marvels, but also the structure of our bodies.”
The artist then reveals his influences: “HR Giger, Zdzisław Beksinski and Takayuki Takeya are artists who I greatly admire. I find that their artworks feel petrified, as if the characters and worlds are frozen in time.”
1 co-op “I wanted to explore a military scene that had an element of scale between two characters. I was looking for a different take at military or police aesthetics. I chose to frame the characters with large shapes, using Hong Kong-inspired architecture.”
2 COLOUR AND CHROME “This dysfunctional couple wants nothing but to be together permanently. They live together in a post-apocalyptic world, so all of the equipment are recycled. This painting was a personal assignment to practise painting metallic and rusty objects.”
