speculative fiction is my favorite kind of writing to read ( & to write) so when i stumble across something that feels akin to speculative narrative in visual art, i am immediately snared. i found these works by markus shinwald via the endless rabbit hole of tumblr and fell in love. there is time traveling going on here, a strange journey to the past that is freckled with a kind of futuristic way of 'seeing.' what particularly hooks my heart with these are the strange apparatuses that sprout from the body, metal networks and heavy cloth that silence the subject or hold up their heads. These are the inclusions the artist introduces to the works that were painted long ago, merging two beings, two time periods into a final, seamless work that feels akin to collage to me ( max ernst, always.)
