Whilst a string of works in the Fear Collection are unified by an orange palette, others adhere to a surrealist style. Every piece of art in this specially curated collection has a similar approach in which they play on the imaginary, the distorted or the surprising. Whether intriguing or shocking the viewer, the art in this collection is daring and original, reflecting the wider range of work we have for sale at Rise Art.

If you’re after something surreal and sinister, take a look at the art of Mark Metcalfe. Mark’s painting, Stigmata: Nuns and Adolescent Girls Breed Poltergeist, along with others in his portfolio, presents a ghostly impression that gestures towards a wider narrative. His realist style, together with the starkness of his subject, makes for a painting that is both unsettling and intriguing. Mark’s boldness in his subject choice echoes other works of art throughout the Fear collection. Fellow painter Clinton Kirkpatrick distorts the human form, and in doing so emphasises the features of the hand and eyes to directly confront the viewer.
The idea of presenting something that is not quite human is reiterated by printmakers. Taking influence from Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism and Street Art, Darren Macpheson's prints are layered with mediums, motifs and meaning.
Martin Thompson’s print, Mouldgirl also demonstrates how combining different elements and techniques can create something that is both unnerving and compelling. Mouldgirl is a mixed media print, created from oils, print, photography and mould. With this piece, Martin pushes the boundaries of what is possible in art, and by adding mould, he undoes the idea that a piece of art is a permanent or still object.
The Fear collection is perfect for people with a taste for art that does more than just sit quietly on a wall. Whether you are looking for something to satisfy your bold style, or on the hunt for something to brighten up a room, start exploring our online gallery and find the perfect piece of art to buy for your home.
