animal montages as an expression of self-therapy, digital paintings by alice zilberberg

toronto based artist, alice zilberberg, has created a series of digital paintings depicting various wild animals in nature. the idea behind the project is to use the animal montages as an expression of self-therapy. as a person living in the west, moving through a daily life that is sometimes high-pace and stressful, the artist has envisioned the artworks to bring calm via the presence of these wild animals.

the animals are placed by zilberberg in serene and ethereal scenes to focus on the beauty of the natural environment. in a world where many are constantly looking to the past or the future, these works aim to have a meditative affect on the viewer, promoting staying still to find happiness in the present moment. from giraffes to polar bears, the series illustrates a range of animals against a calm, muted backdrop.

  • as a painter myself, i cannot see where the painting is in these images…it looks more like photo montage…
