Artist Joel Rea Creates the Most Beautifully Surreal Storm Paintings


Is man battling nature or himself? In these fascinating new paintings by artist Joel Rea, we see man and a tiger going one-on-one with the fury of nature. Using oil on canvas, Rea makes his paintings come alive by showing waves furiously crashing and rocks shockingly crumbling. One has to wonder who has ultimate control in this world. In Resolution, above, we see a man holding a briefcase in one hand and a piece of paper in the other, while a giant wave is about to crash upon him. Solemn or scary? Are you at peace with this painting or does it make you quiver inside? Like any great art, that’s up to you to decide.
