Dark Art ¦ Functional Sculpture – octopus chair with a distinctly Cthulhoid flair by Máximo Riera

Part of a series of images from the shadowy fringes of the Internet.  Visuals that stir my sense for the eerie and macabre.

Spanish born artist, Máximo Riera has created a collection of furniture based around animals. This one, whilst certainly providing a fantastic representation an octopus, would – I feel – also suit any connoisseur of the Cthulhu Mythos.  The mass of writhing tentacles creates a sense of sinewy movement within a static form; equivalent to the idea of trans-dimensional forces, the Outer Chaos, warping the lines of solid structures in reality as they emerge through the Quantispheric boundary. Bending perception. Corrupting the fleshy minds of such puny humans unaccustomed to the cosmic horrors that lurk on the intangible threshold of our universe.

Riera, who like most artists maintains a professional life (medical industry) to cover the secular commitments, has been a working artist for over thirty years; during which time he has built up a formidable body of work including photography, painting and poetry.  The key to his work is his attention to detail and the many influences from travel and abstract artists.
