While some artists devote their lives to the pursuit of the fantastic, others merely dabble in the unreal. Thankfully, Echo Chernik is one such dutiful dabbler, and while her fabulous fairies and mythical muses are but a portion of her impressive body of work, an otherworldly edge is suggested in all of her sensual subjects.
While nearly single handedly reviving the Art Nouveau movement, Ms. Chernik applies this intricate illustrative technique to all of her visual pursuits. Yes, you will have to bravely endure many contemporary coquettes in provocative poses to find the true genre gems, but these treasures are plentiful enough to satisfy, and certainly worth the hunt.
