morbid beauty

Charis Loke

In creating these cards, my initial aim was explore the texture of bird feathers caught in oil - they have, at least to me, a sort of morbid beauty when rendered in pencil and removed from their alarming context. Ultimately, the viewer should not merely admire them at a distance, but begin to question why such a sight should even be made possible, and then look for ways to act.

Short bio: I'm a college student/ artist currently living in Providence, RI, though I hail from Malaysia. Studying biochemistry involves a great deal of marvelling at life, and art is another way for me to do so. More of my work can be found at and

Each card is available for a $10 donation. See details at right
