Cris Brodahl and Peggy Preheim

I discovered an intriguing new artist at the Seattle Art Museum- Cris Brodahl (above).  I like the mix of both creepy and beautiful tendencies at play in the paintings of this Belgian artist, which are based off collages she creates from magazine images.  A gloomy, monochromatic palette and bizarre imagery give her work an eerie quality that evokes the Surrealists of the 1920s with a contemporary edge that reminds me a bit of Peggy Preheim (below). See what you think.
