Formidable Fantasy Figures

Tyler James

A shapely nude woman with long, curled horns stands with a gazelle. A muscular man with gills on his broad chest and a large fin on his back glowers. A beautiful naked woman with wings and an ornate headdress holds a white bird. A pale blue woman with a glowing third eye in an open dress holds an amber orb.

The true power of artistry comes from the mystical transformation of fleeting ideas and feelings into the physical world. The fantasy characters given form by Tyler James are compelling examples of this enviable, and perhaps dangerous gift.

With an inner eye firmly fixed on massive monsters and lanky ladies, Mr. James expels his imaginary demons with precision and style. A surprising degree of detail can be found in his works, yet these idealized forms are subtly — or occasionally, wildly — distorted into otherworldly proportions. These twisted, textured portraits are then expertly framed with dramatic lighting and smoldering backgrounds.

Tyler’s seductive sirens and brutal beasts are surely captivating, but once the true measure of their malevolence or mischievousness is know, we may be grateful for their imaginary status.
