High Artist Spotlight: Hoare C.

Currently, C. Hoare is a Student majoring in English, who dabbles in illustration. He is interested in engaging in the metaphysical themes of the contemporary world. Delving into the saturated glamour of pop culture, often juxtaposed with melancholic subjects. Choosing to explore the use of hallucinogenic colour to create sensation, with non-naturalistic colour that create sensations to represent the subjective vision and state of mind rather than relying on the visual description of a scene.

The main inspiration for this piece [A Sailor's Fate] was his interest on fusing the highly saturated glamour of pop culture and commercialism with ideas used in historical art to provide a narrative comparing our societal standards with those of the respective eras. For this piece in particular, he was inspired by the Nymph from ancient folklore, and how they pursued young men, often bringing on their demise.
