Magic Realism

Robert Scott

A woman wearing a white dress embraces a large green tentacle. A man bravely stands on the corner of a rooftop, while a small dog watches. A businesswoman confers with a large red dragon.

One of the most challenging goals for a creator is to fully integrate one or more aspects of fantasy into the everyday world, with which their audience is intimately familiar. Robert Scott meets this challenge as a matter of course in his quirky, yet meticulous images. Through his work, he ponders the implications of the fantastic in our otherwise mundane lives.

A unique style that is born of the intricate aesthetics of hypereality, implemented with an exotic form of digital papercraft. Through this finely crafted lens, we see familiar subjects from new, and often unique angles. A thoughtful reimaginging of the Major Arcana, as a rediscovery of ancient energies in a modern city is perhaps the most compelling of Mr. Scott’s visions.

Like life itself, there’s magic to be found in Robert’s gallery, if you only know where to look.
