Planet

Today I visited Cica Ghost’s latest creation, Planet. As I’ve said, previously, I have always had an ambiguousness about my reactions to Cica Ghost’s work, sometimes liking it, sometimes not…

… I really like this one. For some reason, this one feels different to me. It still has all the Cica Ghost tropes…

… but they seem fresher, in ‘Planet’, as though some subtle evolution has taken place…

… which is hardly a surprise, given how prolific she’s been recently…

… the thing that has always caused my ambivalence toward her work is that I’ve always found her creatures to be on the creepy side of cute… I found them too unsettling to be enjoyable…

… I don’t feel that with the critters in ‘Planet’, they are suddenly likeable, which, for me, gives them far more depth, and makes the whole work a comfortable experience, not an unsettling one…

… I also particularly like the sky here…

… it has an ‘epic’ quality, it makes me think of 1950’s Chinese and Russian propaganda poster backgrounds.
