I mean Rielly
These are two works by Welsh artist James Rielly, of whom you can read about more here. To me he's a very fascinating, even inspiring artist. Part of that is that his favorite subjects seem to be childhood, night, disguise, as well as disease and difference. These are all deeply interesting themes. But it's also his treatment. Whatever he illuminates in paint, he also leaves a bit mysterious.
