CJP is a contemporary fine artist, living and working in the UK. With a background as an art director and photographer, his current aesthetic reflects the overlap of disciplines: his intricately skilled, original artworks and prints resemble grainy black and white photographs, each one carefully illustrated with painstaking detail and astonishing artistic nuance.
‘Rewild’ depicts a large pine cone, which fills the page in soft black and white. The detail is breathtaking: every seed of the cone can be seen in vivid intricacy, as though viewed under a microscope or shot on macro lens. A closer look, however, reveals that CJP has subtly hidden creatures into the enormous pine cone, only just visible, like a clever optical illusion: a stag stands at the edge of a seed; an owl spreads its wings; an eagle stands majestically.
The print is a gorgeous snapshot of the natural world, skilfully transformed into a compelling work of contemporary art.
