Craig Maher Roost

While wandering around the art show at the Lunacon science fiction convention (back in March) I came across the above painting by Craig Maher and was blown away. Looking back at it I think it was the best work in the entire show — to be fair the above image doesn’t do the actual painting justice. For starters the scale of the painting is much larger (21″ by 31″) and features some amazing detailed brush work, most noticeably on the feathers of the birds. Maher’s use of lighting and color is also amazing too, the surface had an almost iridescent quality to it. And then there is the subject matter itself: In a room crammed full of everything from spaceships to dragons, Maher doesn’t resort to the unknown or unexplored — yet the paining has a very surrealistic quality to it which makes it other worldly.
